Obama gets presidential treatment in The City

Three popular bus lines will be diverted for parts of today and Friday to avoid running into the traffic caused by President Barack Obama’s brief presence in The City, according to Muni. A handful of roads will also be closed.

The president is scheduled for an overnight visit to San Francisco tonight for a $500 to $1,000 per person fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee. Air Force One is scheduled to land at San Francisco International Airport just after 5 p.m. and Obama will spend the evening at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in Union Square. He’ll leave for another obligation in Texas by 9:30 a.m. Friday.

To reduce traffic in areas where the president may visit, the inbound 26-Valencia will stop before traveling on Mission Street. Both directions of the 27-Bryant line will be rerouted and the outbound 38-Geary will be diverted.
