Biden visit to disrupt trafficFebruary 16th, 2012 at 2:11 pm by Bill Diven under N.M. Politics
Vice President Joe Biden is due in Albuquerque on a political trip this afternoon, but details on interstate and street closures have not been released.
He is expected to land at the Albuquerque Sunport and travel by caravan to President Obama’s state re-election headquarters for an appearance at about 3:30 p.m.
From there he’ll be driven across town for a dinner at Los Poblanos off Rio Grande Boulevard at the south end of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque.
After that gathering he heads back to the Sunport for a flight to Los Angeles.
Even though the exact routes and timings are not known, past presidential and vice-presidential visits have resulted in brief shutdowns of the interstates and access ramps until the motorcade passes.
Street closures around events also have been common.
