Presidential motorcade at airport; roads open again

President Obama’s motorcade has left Charlotte’s uptown area and arrived at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

That means all roads are open again in the Charlotte area. Authorities had closed portions of several uptown streets, the John Belk Freeway, Interstate 77, and the Billy Graham Parkway over the last 30 minutes so the president’s motorcade could get from the Charlotte Convention Center to the airport.

No additional road closures are expected today.
