These roads closed as President Trump visited Apple in Austin

For security reasons, his exact route was unknown. U.S. 183 was shut as the president made his way to and from Apple's northwest Austin facility.

AUSTIN, Texas — As President Donald Trump's motorcade made its way through Austin to tour Apple's Flextronics plant, drivers were met with traffic and road closures.

For security reasons, President Trump's exact route was unknown ahead of time.

President Trump's team arrived at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport around 1:45 p.m., around 30 minutes later than scheduled.

U.S. 183 northbound was shut down as he made his way toward the Flextronics factory in northwest Austin, where Mac Pro's are being produced. The factory is located off U.S. 183 and McNeil Drive.

According to our partners at The Statesman, Trump's motorcade took Texas 130 to U.S. 290 East to arrive at Apple's facility. He retraced this route back to the airport after his visit.
