WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – Traffic delays, limited parking and seating, and multiple security checkpoints are some issues to be expected for those hearing President Trump’s remarks Friday in Lebanon.
“It’s going to be a madhouse so I’m going to probably stay away. It’s going to be a lot of traffic, I don’t know what it’s all going to be, it’s just going to be a mess,” said Warren County resident Richard McCury.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office wants to share some information with the public ahead of the event.
No one will be allowed on site until 2 pm, and under no circumstances will you be able to park on Broadway until then.
Overflow parking will be directly across from the fairgrounds at Colonial Park West.
Carpooling is advised because parking is limited, adding that there is also very limited seating and bleacher seats will be on a first come basis.
Warren County resident Stephanie Todd said, “Everyone’s been coming in all week, you know, President Trump is coming and we’ve got tickets.”
For anyone driving through the area, sporadic road closures and traffic delays are expected on the northern loop of I-275, I-71 from I-275, and I-71 to State Route 48.
