TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Plans are starting to unfold in Tupelo for next Monday’s arrival of President Donald Trump.

Tupelo city leaders are urging local businesses and residents to be prepared for heavier-than-normal traffic.

At this time, plans call for the closure of a portion of Jackson Street. Details about that closure have yet to be released.

Further details for parking will be released later as well.

The City of Tupelo, Lee County Sheriff’s Department and the Mississippi Highway Patrol are working in support of the president's security detail.

People who are attending the event are asked to be careful and plan their travel accordingly.

The event is being hosted by Hyde-Smith's campaign and/or the president’s campaign. The two campaigns are responsible for logistics such as ticketing, parking and timing.

Tickets can be reserved at DonaldJTrump.com.

We will update our information once more planning details become available.
