President Donald Trump will be stopping through Orlando on Friday, Feb. 16, according to an advisory issued by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Bloomberg reports that the president’s trip to Orlando is for an infrastructure event – the first of what will surely be many as Trump touts the potential legislation nationwide. The “VIP Movement Notification,” as presidential flight restrictions are referred to, was first reported by the Palm Beach Post last Friday.

The White House has yet to confirm the president’s travel plans. But even so, the trip would make for Trump’s 14th visit to Mar-a-Lago since his inauguration in January 2017, with the most recent trip coming during Super Bowl weekend. Trump reportedly played golf and hosted a party.

Also, if Trump’s motorcade is out and about, expect bad traffic.
