CINCINNATI - President Barack Obama will be in the Tri-State this week.
The president is scheduled to visit the area on Thursday, Sept. 22, according to White House officials.
The White House says President Obama will be in the region to visit the Brent Spence Bridge and urge Congress to pass the American Jobs Act so the country can make much-needed investments in infrastructure projects and put more Americans back to work. President Obama has talked about the bridge in the past as an example for the need to rebuild infrastructure in America.
The Brent Spence Bridge is one of the busiest trucking routes in North America, yet is considered "functionally obsolete" because it is in need of so many significant repairs.
No further details were available from the White House.
9 News will post more information on President Obama's visit as it becomes available.
