UW-Madison announces more details for Obama's visit

MADISON (WKOW) -- If you're heading to the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus on Thursday for President Barack Obama's visit, university officials want you to be prepared.

Thursday's event will be held on Bascom Hill. The event is free to attend, but you must RSVP here to attend.

Campus officials say the line to enter the event will form on the sidewalk on Observatory Drive to the west of Bascom Hall. Observatory Drive will be closed to traffic from Babcock Drive to Park Street. All who enter the event must show their registration on their mobile phone or a printout and undergo screening by metal detector.

UW-Madison says downtown traffic will be affected by street closings throughout the day on Thursday. Campus streets that will be entirely or partially closed include:

  • Observatory Drive, closed from Park to Charter. Observatory Drive will be west-bound only from Charter to Babcock.  
  • Langdon Street will be closed west of Lake Street.
  • Park Street will be closed north of University Avenue.
  • Charter Street will be closed north of Linden Drive, except for ADA drop-off.
