The visit by United States President Barack Obama to Ramallah, a week from Thursday, will result in occasional closings of Route 60 to the public in the Binyamin region, just north of Jerusalem. The highway will be closed between 8:30 and 10:30 in the morning and between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m.
The Binyamin Regional Council said the closings will affect the communities of Adam, Beit El, Cochav Ya'akov-Tel Tzion and Pesagot. The communities of Migron and Ramat Migron also stand to be affected. Residents of other communities will have the alternatives of the Alon and Hamercaz routes.
