President Donald Trump at a rally in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- President Donald Trump is visiting both the Seelbach Hotel and Galt House Hotel on Wednesday, arriving in downtown Louisville around 1:30 p.m. and leaving around 5:30 p.m.

During that time, and well before and after, officials said drivers can expect streets throughout downtown to be shut down. Those include Main Street between Second and Fifth Streets, as well as Muhammad Ali Boulevard from Third to Fifth Streets. The city said Trump's route in and out of downtown Louisville could vary, so the closures could reach as far north as River Road and as far south as Chestnut Street.

Rebecca Matheny, the executive director for the Louisville Downtown Partnership, suggests businesses to consider the following five suggestions:

1. Allow employees to work from home.

2. Utilize flexible hours to avoid road closure times.

3. Travel by TARC with a planned stop outside road closure areas.

4. Park in surface parking lots or a garage outside of road closure areas.

5. Plan to be in the office during closure times and be prepared to leave the office later, if necessary.

If you are on the streets during times when the President is on the move, Matheny says "don't expect to be able to cross streets until the motorcade is gone. And prior to the motorcade and after the motorcade, there won't be any ability to cross, so just be patient."

The areas around Jackson and Hancock Streets will be closed as well. There will also be no on-street parking throughout the day, and a number of parking garages will be partially closed or have limited access.
