CINCINNATI -- President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump's visit to the Tri-State on Monday will mean some traffic disruptions as the president's motorcade moves through the region.

Air Force One is scheduled to land at Lunken Airport Monday afternoon. The president will deliver remarks at Sheffer Corp. in Blue Ash.

Specifics about the presidential motorcade's route are always kept confidential, but here are the roads that could be affected by President Trump's visit:

First, East Enders should be most vigilant throughout the day, as they should expect Wilmer Avenue and Wooster Road in the Lunken vicinity to be shut down both when the president arrives and readies to depart. These roads provide access to the municipal airport.

Redbank Road is also a connector between the two locations, in that it connects to Interstate 71.

This would be the most direct route. Commuters should expect shutdowns of I-71 between Redbank and Pfeiffer roads while the motorcade is en route. Here's that route:

Secret Service could choose to avoid the interstate. In that case, Fairfax and Mariemont residents should expect shutdowns on Wooster Pike and Camargo and Plainville roads. Camargo Road runs up through Madeira and Indian Hill, so those who commute through those cities should be ready, as well.
