Obama Traffic Disruptions to Conclude this Afternoon


Vehicular and public transportation in Jerusalem will be disrupted, Friday morning and early afternoon, because of security arrangements associated with the visit of United States President Barack Obama. From 7:30 until 9:45, the following streets will be closed as Obama makes his way to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial institution and Har Herzl: Agron, Ramban, Rupin, Wolfson and Yefe Nof. Other disruptions will follow his meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, his return to the King David Hotel and his visit to Bethlehem. Buses and Jerusalem's light rail will also be affected in areas near the presidential travel route.

The Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Highway (Route 1) will be closed between the capital and Ben-Gurion International Airport ahead of Obama's departure for Jordan.
