CINCINNATI — President Bill Clinton’s arrival in Cincinnati Friday to host a Get Out the Vote fundraiser for wife and presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has a lot of area Democrats excited.

It could also mean delays or closures on some East End, Mt. Lookout, Hyde Park, Walnut Hills and Clifton streets.

Traditionally, visiting political figures tend to arrive into the city at Lunken Airport in East End. With the doors set to open at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center at 2 p.m., Clinton and his cohort could arrive at Lunken as early as 11 a.m. or noon.

The question then becomes: How will Clinton get from point A to point B, and will your paths cross?

The good news is that those traveling during traditionally peak hours, especially the morning rush hour, the impact will be minimal. The most likely impacts will be along one of more of the following thoroughfares, in the afternoon hours:

  • U.S. 50/Columbia Parkway
  • Linwood Ave.
  • William Howard Taft Drive
  • Victory Parkway
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Drive
  • Clifton Ave.

WCPO has reached out to city officials and is currently awaiting more information regarding the specific route, but here are some of the most likely the Clinton caravan could take:
