WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and family are putting a punctuation mark on Easter, presiding over the traditional Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House.

Thirty-thousand people from 45 states have tickets, many of them signing up through a White House Web site. Anybody who wants to see it can follow the event on the Internet.

Later the president goes to the Transportation Department to mark the 2,000th project to be helped by the $48-billion allocated for transportation infrastructure under the federal stimulus package. The latest is a $68-million project to widen a highway interchange in Kalamazoo County, Mich.

Obama will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.
