      Obama Visit Update: Route 1 Only Closed for Minutes


      The motorcade of U.S. President Barack Obama passed by Highway 1, the main route connecting the Tel Aviv area to Jerusalem. In light of the sparse traffic, police closed the road from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem for only a few minutes rather then a full hour as expected. Most buses in Jerusalem have been rerouted due to the presidential visit. For updates regarding the traffic situation in Jerusalem visit the official Jerusalem Municipality website by clicking here.
