President Barack Obama will be arriving in Atlanta this afternoon for a series of fundraisers, including one at the Tyler Perry studios that will feature a performance by Atlanta’s own Cee-Lo Green.
Before returning to the White House, President Obama will visit Tyler Perry’s home for an exclusive party that cost $35,800 per head. At least 60 people are expected to attend.
The White House has not publicly released the president’s travel plans, but according to the White House’s web site, President Obama is scheduled to land at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport at 5:30 pm. Any route from Hartsfield to Tyler Perry’s southwest Atlanta studios would likely involve I-285 or I-85, as well as surface streets. Traffic along those roads will be blocked for the president’s motorcade.
