Love him or hate him, Obama’s coming to town today, and that can only mean one thing: f’d up traffic.
The highlight of the visit is set to be a speech over at NC State, which is a partner in Obama’s “manufacturing inovation institute“. The exact time of the event is not yet know, but you can bet if you encounter some gridlock POTUS is at the other end of it.
Probably more relevant to Durham commuters is Obama’s earlier visit to a Vacon site in RTP. The NC State visit is grabbing the headlines, but the itenerary means the motorcade will first go from RDU to RTP and then on to Raleigh. So, you know, watch those traffic reports, and give yourself a few extra minutes.
