People Can't Walk On One Of The White House Sidewalks Anymore
The agency did not directly mention the fence-jumper in March as a motivation, but they said the new restrictions may help deter similar attempts in the future.
"This is not going to impede the public's ability to take the iconic photo of the White House, " Secret Service spokeswoman Catherine Milhoan told USA Today.
The blocking of the sidewalk will not obstruct the public's ability to view the White House and no additional "physical" barriers will be installed, according to the Reuters report.
FILE - In this October 3, 2014 file photo, two women lean against a temporary barrier along Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House in Washington. The intruder, Jonathan Tran, 26, approached the south portico entrance carrying two cans of mace and a letter for President Donald Trump before an officer arrested him, the agency said.
The new area of security focus, the south grounds of the White House complex, is on the side nearest the Washington Monument and draws large crowds on the bordering sidewalks, especially on occasions when the president arrives or departs on Marine One.
The path has been closed nightly from 11pm to 6am since 2015 and will now be off-limits around the clock, the Secret Service said.
Even before that, the White House was having problems with fence-jumpers. It's still unclear how he was able to get so close to the White House after jumping the fence and why he was wandering the grounds. In addition, the agency has announced plans to raise the height of the fence and make it "tougher, taller and stronger", as a spokeswoman put it past year.
Just over a week later, another man jumped the protective bicycle rack barrier at the northern side of the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Reuters reported that the move comes after a man climbed the fence east of the building and night and was roaming the grounds for 16 minutes before being detained.
