President Obama to stay overnight in Auburn

Neighbors in Auburn are anxiously awaiting a presidential stop. The President is expected to stay at the Holiday Inn in Auburn on Thursday night before continuing his bus tour on Friday. The Secret Service has been seen around the area throughout the day.

Flags were raised outside of City Hall and the Seward House to welcome the President. On Thursday afternoon, caution tape blocked off the Holiday Inn parking lot, with officers guarding the perimeter of the hotel on North Street.

The Federal Aviation Administration has cleared the airspace over Auburn for Thursday night into Friday morning.

Earlier in the week, those in charge of the Harriet Tubman Home and Seward House told CNY Central's Alex Dunbar they are ready to show the Commander-In-Chief around, at a moment's notice.

Some wonder if that momentâ??s notice could come Friday morning, before the Presidentâ??s bus tour makes its way to Binghamton University.

The Thruway Authority reminds drivers to expect delays, and slower traffic patterns, as the President's motorcade continues to make its way through the area Thursday night and Friday.

In some situations, portions of the Thruway may even be blocked off entirely.
