A visit from President Barack Obama Thursday means increased security in Seattle, which will affect buses for Sound Transit and King County Metro Transit.

Pedestrians will not be allowed in Convention Place Station in the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Buses will still travel through the station but will not stop there. Passengers will not be allowed to get on or off buses in the station, or access the tunnel from the CPS entrance at 9th Avenue and Pine Street.

Officials said passengers may board and exit buses at the other four tunnel stations.

Sound Transit Link light rail service will operate normally in the tunnel.

From noon to 3 p.m., Pine Street will be closed west of Interstate 5 and no buses will run on Pine Street between I-5 and 5th Avenue during that time.

Bus passengers are warned to expect delays Thursday due to street closures and traffic backups.
