Nearly 120 Metro police officers will be assisting the United States Secret Service with security requirements Thursday for President Obama’s visit to Nashville and McGavock High School.  The Metro police personnel will consist in large part of Traffic and Flex officers from various precincts who will spend their regular shifts Thursday on the presidential assignment.
Motorists are advised that the president’s travels in the city will necessitate brief closures of roadways between Nashville International Airport and McGavock High School between midafternoon Thursday into the start of rush hour.  Specific routes are not being disclosed for security reasons.
