US President Donald Trump announced plans for a second nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un in Vietnam on Wednesday, February 27, and Thursday, February 28.

Heightened security measures, including checkpoints and increased security personnel, are expected during the summit and in the days before. Associated disruptions, including road closures and increased congestion, are similarly likely.
