Vice president's visit to shut down some roads in Des Moines

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Several roads around the Iowa Capitol will be closed Wednesday due to a visit from Vice President Joe Biden, according to the Iowa Department of Public Safety.

Biden will join with a Catholic social justice group called Nuns on the Bus on the Capitol's West Terrace.

Between 7 a.m. and noon, Grand Avenue will be closed from East 12th Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, and Walnut Street will be closed from East Seventh Street to East 12th Street. For people attending the event, the entrance is at East Seventh Street and Locust Street.

Biden is considering running for president in 2016. His visit comes just days after former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton addressed Iowa Democrats at Sen. Tom Harkin's annual fundraiser. Clinton is also weighing a 2016 bid.
