Streets in Old Palo Alto are impacted Thursday morning due to a visit by President Barack Obama to a private fundraising event on Seale Avenue.
Seale between Alma Street and Middlefield Road, and Emerson Street between Tennyson Avenue and Oregon Expressway are impacted by parking restrictions and closures to accommodate the presidential motorcade.
Expect temporary road closures between 10 and noon for Obama's visit, according to the Palo Alto Police Department. Officers will be directing traffic as needed, according to a tweet from the police department's Twitter account.
Obama is attending a $33,000-per-person fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee at the home of Amy Rao, CEO of Integrated Archive Systems, according to Democratic party sources.
Later in the day, Obama will attend a public fundraiser in Atherton at the home of former state Controller Steve Westly and Anita Yu, after which he flies to Los Angeles to tape an appearance on the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and attend DNC events.
