TARRYTOWN - President Barack Obama is visiting the Hudson Valley on Wednesday to talk infrastructure and many local residents say they're excited for his visit.

Obama will be speaking at a restaurant near the Tappan Zee Bridge to urge Congress to pass more funding for transportation. Residents say they agree with his plan to push transportation because it helps create jobs and improves roads and bridges.

"It's going to cost a lot of money, but I think it's worth it," says Nyack resident Kim Miller. She says she worries about her safety when driving over the current Tappan Zee Bridge and looks forward to the opening of the new span.

Obama will be landing by helicopter near the former General Motors site, then travel down the road to Sunset Cove, where he will deliver his speech.
