NYC Afternoon Gridlock: President Obama’s Visit To Cause Mass Transit Disruptions


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

President Barack Obama is making another trip to New York City that could cause big problems for commuters.

He’s scheduled to arrive in New York City Thursday afternoon, along with First Lady Michelle Obama.

They’re expected to head to One World Trade Center in lower Manhattan around 5 p.m., where they will meet elected officials including Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

They will get a firsthand look at construction progress at the World Trade Center site and President Obama will sign a beam that will become part of the building’s infrastructure.

They will then attend campaign events, including a fundraising dinner at the Plaza Hotel.

As with most of the president’s frequent New York City visits, it is expected to cause rush hour gridlock.

Expect road closures in Lower Manhattan while the president is at the World Trade Center.

There will be no PATH train service to and from the World Trade Center from 3 p.m.- 6 p.m.

N.J. Transit is cross-honoring tickets from commuters returning to New Jersey.

Travelers can take the A, C or E subway lines to Penn. Station to access the PATH or take the R subway line to the 33rd Street PATH station.
