President Obama’s Binghamton Visit To Cause Traffic Troubles
President Obama’s tour from Buffalo to Scranton is by bus, but to get to Buffalo, he took a chopper. Personally, I wish he would use it to hop from town to town.
A Presidential visit means traffic headaches for all involved. It goes with the security detail. As our news goddess Kathy Whyte puts it, he has to be in a bubble of protection and that bubble, as he moves, causes a bubble of traffic tie ups.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here is the area sealed off at the B.U. campus during Obama’s visit:
As far as roads affected, so far we know that I-81, Route 17, Vestal Parkway, Vestal Road, Murray Hill and Bunn Hill Roads will be tied up as the bus moves through with the motorcade.
Rolling closures will occur and these will last no more than 20 minutes.
My basic advice to you for today is have patience.
