Vice President Mike Pence will visit the Magic City for his third time.

According to the Billings Police Department, traffic will be re-routed in multiple areas of downtown traffic, which will cause delays.  

Billings Police Chief Rich St. John is quoted as saying, "This is a major disruption of downtown traffic."   

The City of Billings and the State of Montana welcome Vice President Pence to Billings Montana so it really will not be any significant disruption of downtown traffic because Montana and the Billings residents want the Vice President to visit the great city of Billings.

At about 11:45, Air Force Two will arrive in Billings on Wednesday.  A motorcade will then take the Vice President to the RiverStone Health building.

1st Ave South and South 27th street including South 25th street, will be blocked off while Vice President Pence is at the RiverStone Health Center.

As usual Billings Police Officers and other Law Enforcement Department will be closing the intersections as Vice President Pence's motorcade is coming down 27th street head to the downtown area.

Vice President Pence's motorcade will be traveling at a rapid pace to not linger in any area of the route for too long.  Once downtown there will be delays that are a bit longer, and some areas including some streets will be blocked off until the motorcade has taken Vice President Pence back to the airport to board Air Force Two to leave Billings.

An area around the Double-Tree will be blocked off during the Vice Presidents visit.  Some of the other streets to avoid will be 1st Ave north and North 27th Street over to North 26th Street, Montana Ave from North 26th over to North 27th Street and including first ave North from North 26th Street and north 27th street.

Foot traffic and be on any of these streets buy when a pedestrian gets to the area of Montana Ave and North 27th street they will have to go through a Secret Service checkpoint.

Both the Empire Garage and the Park2 will be open for drivers to park their cars.  However, they will not be able to access the rooftop parking as that has been blocked off by the Parking Division at the request of the Secret Service.

At some point, and time the Vice President will then travel on I-90.

All exists between Lockwood, and the Zoo Drive will close for about 30 minutes.

The closure will be some time in the afternoon on Wednesday.
As to the exact time, no information has been released, due to security reasons for the Vice President.

If the public gets a chance to wave at the Vice President as he goes by, let him know that in Montana, Trump and Pence are always supported and welcome to visit the Magic City and the Great State of Montana.
