The final preparations are under way Tuesday to welcome President Obama to St. Paul.
Obama will speak Wednesday afternoon at Union Depot. He will be speaking about transportation and will launch a new competition aimed at creating jobs and restoring infrastructure.
He is expected to talk around 2 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public. General Public tickets were distributed Monday on a first-come, first-served basis. The limited number of tickets were gone within a few hours.
