President Joe Biden is scheduled to head to Baltimore on Friday to visit the site of the collapsed Francis Scott Key Bridge. During the press briefing, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre gave a preview of the trip.

“Meet with state and local officials and get on the ground. Look at federal response efforts. President Biden and his team are working with Governor Moore, the congressional delegation, Mayor Scott and numerous state and and local officials to reopen the port, rebuild the bridge, and support the people of Baltimore. The Chesapeake 1000 arrived Thursday night, and on Saturday, the unified command successfully removed the first piece of wreckage.”

In a separate news conference, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott assured residents that the rebuild would come with integrity.

“And the most important thing that each and every one of us can understand is that we will do it quickly, but the right and safe way every single day until we get this channel back open. Baltimore will recover. It will be long. It will be likely a very hard road.”
