DETROIT – On Tuesday, October 5 President Joe Biden is scheduled to visit Howell, the White House confirmed Sunday.

During the trip Biden will continue rallying public support for his bipartisan infrastructure bill and Build Back Better agenda.

In a news release the White House stated both will, “grow our economy by investing in working families, paid for by repealing tax giveaways to the rich.”

According to the White House, Biden is going to visit the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 324 training facility in Howell. Biden is expected to speak there at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The president’s visit could impact afternoon bus routes and student pick-ups in Howell. Parents who pick up their children from school are asked to plan for possible delays in reaching their child’s school.

“The route that the President’s motorcade will travel is currently unknown. For safety and security reasons, the route will probably not be known until sometime tomorrow. We have had discussions with the county’s emergency management team and local law enforcement officials and have been advised that regardless of the route taken, the roads along that route will likely be closed for the entirety of the visit, significantly impacting traffic in the area,” said Erin J. MacGregor, superintendent of Howell Public Schools.

Parents are also encouraged to download the MyStop app, which provides real-time updates on bus stop times.
