TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Officials say motorists should expect traffic delays during President Barack Obama’s visit to Westchester County on Wednesday.
Obama is scheduled to appear near the Tappan Zee Bridge in Tarrytown to call on Congress to support his $302 billion transportation plan. A $1.6 billion federal loan was recently approved for the nearly $4 billion project.
Tarrytown Mayor Drew Fixell tells the Journal News midday street closures are expected.
Some parking spaces in the nonresident lots west of the Metro-North will also be off-limits starting Tuesday.
Commuters should use street parking along West Main Street and areas near Pierson Park and the northeast section of the Walgreens parking lot.
They are being encouraged to take the Tappan ZEExpress instead of driving.
The White House is planning several infrastructure-themed events this week.
