APD Urges Driver Patience During Presidential Visit Thursday

Nov. 2, 2022

APD will provide traffic control assistance during President Biden’s visit to New Mexico on Thursday. The President will attend multiple events while in Albuquerque, which will require police to shut down traffic on some stretches of roads, including I-25, I-40 and the Big-I.

Drivers should avoid the area south of I-40 in SE and SW Albuquerque between the hours of 12:30 and 7:00p.m. Rush hour traffic will be impacted as drivers cross the Rio Grande in the evening. Drivers should consider alternative river crossings north of I-40, such as Montaño Road, Paseo Del Norte Blvd. and Alameda Blvd.

There will be no parking allowed along the route for the motorcade. Parked cars will be towed.
