It's been more than a year in the making since the toxic train derailment in East Palestine,  but we now know when President Biden will visit the community.

Biden is expected to visit East Palestine on February 16. White House officials confirmed late Saturday evening.

According to a news release sent out by the White House, the President will travel to East Palestine to discuss how the administration is continuing to work with state and local officials to hold Norfolk Southern accountable and support the community as it moves forward. 

Additionally, the release says the President will discuss his commitment to ensuring the people of East Palestine are not defined by this single event, and that his administration is delivering on the needs of families, businesses and affected residents.

Biden announced the visit last month, but did not give details on when he would visit until today.

More details on the visit are expected later next week.
