Drivers will be rerouted and sent on detour roads, and travelers should expect delays and plan accordingly, said Chilmark Police Chief Brian Cioffi, in the Times report.
"I participated in tabletop exercises of different plans [with Secret Service], and in the end the Secret Service decided that the safest plan for the president and his family is to close the road and only allow neighbors access," Chief Cioffi said, in the Times report. "When all is said and done, our department will do whatever is needed to support the Secret Service in any way we can. We'll make the best of it. I'm sure Islanders will do the same."
