Biden will be in the county on Thursday, April 25, when he is scheduled to appear at a fundraising event in the village of Irvington-on-Hudson hosted by actors Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. 

According to an announcement from the Irvington Police Department on Tuesday, April 23, the visit will cause "significant" traffic impacts beginning in the mid-afternoon and continuing through rush hour. 

The visit will also cause long-term closures on several major thoroughfares and add to traffic on secondary roads, the department said. 

The exact roadways that will be affected by closures have not been detailed because of security concerns. 

Because of these impacts, the department advised motorists to avoid traveling in the area after 2 p.m. on Thursday. 

Rail commuters on Metro-North's Hudson Line should be spared from any traffic impacts, police added.
