MADISON, Wis. — For the first time in its 103-year history, the state capitol will play host to the vice president of the United States – and it will probably mean some traffic delays for you.

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to speak at the Capitol for National School Choice Week at noon. He will be landing at Dane County Regional Airport around 11 a.m. and then make his way downtown, causing what’s called “rolling road closures” as he goes.

Due to security, police won’t share the exact location of those closures but say delays can be expected up until Pence arrives at the Capitol.
