Binghamton University Sites Await Obama

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

As President Obama’s bus tour schedule is being finalized, speculation continues surrounding an expected stop in Broome County.

Officials have indicated Binghamton University is to host Obama during a local visit.

Law enforcement sources have said the president won’t be going to the main campus in Vestal.

Thousands of freshman students will be moving into their dorms on Thursday and returning students are scheduled to move in the following day, creating traffic headaches along the Vestal Parkway corridor.

If Obama were to visit the Innovative Technologies Complex on Murray Hill Road, just east of the main campus, traffic and other logistical issues could pose a concern for local police and the Secret Service.

But a stop at the Binghamton University Downtown Center on Washington Street would be away from the Vestal traffic congestion. The downtown venue would lend itself to what is expected to be a relatively small gathering.

Binghamton University representatives say they are unable to announce any specifics about plans for the presidential visit.

Obama also is expected to make stops in the Buffalo and Syracuse areas before traveling to Broome County in what’s billed as a two-day bus tour. The president is expected to head to the Scranton area to conclude the tour.
