President Trump plans to address the nation from the Mall on the Fourth of July, upending tradition and bringing changes to the annual event. Here’s what we know:

Where will the fireworks be?

The traditional site for the holiday’s fireworks along the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool has been moved, and a second fireworks show has been added. The first fireworks display will launch at 9:07 p.m. from flatbed tractor-trailers parked on a mile-long stretch behind the Lincoln Memorial. The second display will take place about 15 minutes later at West Potomac Park, about 1,500 feet south of where the pyrotechnics have traditionally launched. Two private fireworks firms have teamed up to put on the extended display.

When is Trump expected to speak at the Lincoln Memorial?

The Salute to America, with music, military demonstrations, and flyovers by Air Force One and the Navy’s Blue Angels, along with the president’s remarks, is set to take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Trump told reporters there also will be tanks stationed near the memorial. At least 300 service members are scheduled to participate. An area in front of the memorial will be reserved for dignitaries, family and friends and will be accessible only through tickets distributed by the White House.

Will ‘A Capitol Fourth’ still go on in front of the Capitol?

Yes. The annual event, which airs on PBS, is unaffiliated with any other Fourth of July event. This year’s concert, which runs from 8 to 9:30 p.m., will feature songwriting legend Carole King, singer Vanessa Williams and the National Symphony Orchestra.

How much will the additional events cost the city and federal government?

It is unclear how much the additional events will cost the city and federal government. The Defense Department has not released estimates of how much the additional events will cost. Washington Post reporters Juliet Eilperin, Josh Dawsey and Dan Lamothe reported that the F-35 costs about $30,000 an hour to fly, according to Pentagon estimates. Each Blue Angel jet costs at least $10,000 an hour to operate, and the cost of flying an Air Force One jet is more than $140,000 an hour. And late Tuesday, Eilperin, Dawsey and Lamothe reported that the National Park Service would tap its entrance and recreation fees to pay $2.5 million in White House spending on the event, according to two individuals familiar with the arrangement. That is believed to be only a portion of the bill.

The city says that Trump still has not paid the District government more than $7 million for the 2017 inauguration, which cost the city $27.3 million.

If I plan to go to the Mall, where do I go, and how do I get there?

Metro has traditionally been the best way to reach the Mall on the Fourth of July, and the agency is planning extended rush-hour service beginning at 2 p.m. to accommodate any additional crowds. In past years, rush-hour service began at 5 p.m. The system will be open from 7 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., and off-peak fares will be in effect throughout the day.

Arlington Memorial Bridge, which has been open in past years, will be closed for the day, cutting off people trying to drive into the District from Arlington National Cemetery and other nearby points. Boaters will not be able to anchor between the Theodore Roosevelt and Arlington Memorial bridges.

If you’re planning on flying, the flyovers could affect travel. The event will freeze air traffic for those heading to and from Reagan National Airport from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. for the flyover of military jets and from 9 to 9:45 p.m. for the extended fireworks show. Post reporter Lori Aratani reports that in past years, flights at National have not been affected by the fireworks, but the launch point moved this year to accommodate Trump’s speech.

Several roads around the area will be closed beginning July 2. Plan accordingly.

What’s the history here? Who was the first president to celebrate July 4?

No president has been part of a Fourth of July celebration on the Mall in recent memory. President Ronald Reagan participated in a “Star Spangled Salute to America” at the Jefferson Memorial on July 3, 1987. Presidents George Washington and John Adams attended celebrations in various towns around the country.
