Route 1A Traffic Delays Likely Today During Trump Jr.’s Visit
Afternoon commuters on Route 1A in Holden can expect some delays today, during Donald Trump Jr.'s campaign visit.
The President's son will be making a stop at Maine Military Supply this evening to campaign for his father's Presidential candidacy. The rally is expected to start at 6 p.m, which means traffic on Route 1A could be delayed in the hours immediately before and after that. Motorists may want to give themselves some extra time, if they plan to travel Route 1A during the afternoon and evening, or navigate around the area.
One concern for the Holden Police is that drivers may pull over and stop, while trying to see what's going on, which could cause accidents. Route 1A is always a busy road, but especially at this time of day as people are commuting between work and home. The Holden Police Department is working with State Police and the Penobscot County Sheriff's Department to make it as safe for everyone, as possible.
Donald Trump Jr. will head to Sea Dog in Bangor, after the rally in Holden, for a party fundraiser with Congressional candidate Dale Crafts. Crafts is running against incumbent Jared Golden to represent Maine's 2nd congressional district. Donald Trump Jr.'s visit follows his brother, Eric's appearance in Saco last week.
Jill Biden, wife of Presidential candidate Joe Biden, is also due to make a campaign stop in Maine on Friday. According to WGME-TV, the details of when and where she will be appearing have not yet been made public.
