President Trump's visit to Elkhart will cause delays

The South Bend International Airport is expected to be busier than usual Thursday.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will land there before heading to Elkhart for the rally.

What we know about their arrival plans is limited, because the Secret Service keeps a pretty tight lid on security detail for the president.

But we could see an arrival similar to when President Barack Obama came here in 2016.

His plane touched down about an hour before he was set to appear in Elkhart.

That could mean President Trump will arrive in Air Force One close to the 6 p.m. hour Thursday evening, ahead of the 7 p.m. rally.

A new addition this time around, not seen in 2016, is the Vice President.

We understand that Pence will arrive on his own in Air Force Two.

This is what happened in Dallas, Texas the last time they had a joint appearance.

They arrived about the same time at the same airport. They each had their own motorcade, following the same route that was shut down to other traffic.

That's exactly what could happen here Thursday.

The fastest route to get between the two spots is the Indiana Toll Road.

While we do not know for sure this is the way they will take, it's safe to assume travel on that road could see significant delays during your drive home from work.

Closer to the school, you should expect travel to be restricted with delays and re-routing.

Bristol Streel between North Main Street and Cassopolis Street in Elkhart will be closed starting at 3 p.m.

At the airport, we know that the South Shore will see some delays on trains arriving and departing between about 6:30 and 9:30 p.m.
