PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Dozens of bus lines have been rerouted in downtown Providence starting Thursday night because of an overnight trip to the state by President Barack Obama.

The White House hasn’t said where Obama is staying when he sleeps over on Thursday, other than that it is in the Providence area.

But Rhode Island Public Transit Authority says it’s diverting 28 routes downtown and relocating several bus stops starting Thursday at 7:30 p.m. to accommodate the presidential visit.

The detours are scheduled to last through 10:30 a.m. Friday.

Several stops are being relocated from Sabin Street.

RIPTA also says minor delays should be expected around Kennedy Plaza.
