Newb Question. Widow vs Expansion

Terran Discussion
I haven't gotten addicted to the multi portion of sc yet but I was messing around in custom and was wondering about something. I like to put a widow mine near the computers expansions to know when he is expanding. I thought of 2 things.

Say a lone drone was moving to an expansion to make a hatchery. Is the widow mine even fast enough to kill the drone before it starts building?

Suppose the mine was on the dead center of the closest place to put a CC. Would it stop someone from building on top of it? Overlords spawning creep stop someone from building on that right. Would a mine force someone to destroy it before they can build or would it just push the mine to the side to fit the building?
If you put it right where the player wants to build the hatch/nexus/cc the other player cannot build there
