News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — President Joe Biden will visit Kansas City, Missouri, on Wednesday delivering remarks regarding the bipartisan infrastructure law and how it impacts Missouri.

On Wednesday, Biden will speak at the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority about how the new bill will help rebuild bridges, upgrade public transit, replace and update water infrastructure and create jobs.

The President will land before 1 p.m. on Wednesday and leave right before 4 p.m.

Drivers in the area of the airport or KCATA should expect traffic delays.

“We’re asking that people not try to come to the airport area to try to get a photo,” Joe McBride with KCI said. “If you’re coming up when he’s moving, I-29 could be shut down and also the main roadway coming into the airport, the front end of it, the front end it.”

It is Biden’s first visit to the Kansas City area as president. He was last in Kansas City in March 2020 while campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Biden signed the $1 trillion infrastructure bill on Nov. 15. It contains money for roads, bridges, broadband, water systems and a shift to electrical vehicles.
