Those planning to attend the Region 6-AAA basketball tournament at Decatur High School on Thursday should prepare for some delays because of a visit from President Obama.
Obama will visit the College Heights Learning Center in Decatur and the area is expected to locked down by security until at least 4 p.m.
The visit coincides with the first semifinal girls basketball game (Decatur vs. Woodward Academy at 4 p.m.) at Decatur High and could produce a traffic nightmare for those planning to attend.
The President had asked to use the theater facility at Decatur High, but was unable to do so because of the basketball tournament. The administration policy is to avoid disrupting any existing event already on the schedule.
