Obama Alert


Ideal L.A. Traffic


President Obama will be returning to Los Angeles for fundraising on Wednesday, February 15.
You know what this means - many street closures and delays. The good news this time is that he won't have to travel as far as usual, so the traffic impact should be lighter.  Also, most closures are expected to be "rolling" which means police pick up the barricades as soon as the President's motorcade has passed.

Here's what we have so for as we continue to piece together the closures.  These are our best assumptions taking in to account past visits and current info.  This is highly subject to change!
Wednesday, February 15, 2102
  • Sometime after 3pm: President arrives at LAX
  • Between 3:45 and 4:15pm: President will be helicoptered from LAX to the VA
  • Between 4:15pm and 5pm: President will be driven across the westside to the fundraiser at the home of soap opera mogul Bradley Bell in the Holmby Hills / Beverly Hills area.  Will Ferrell will host.  Major east-west streets to be affected are Sunset and Wilshire. 
  • Between 8pm and 9pm: President will likely return to Beverly Hilton hotel to spend the night.  This may occur even earlier as the President is attending a breakfast fundraiser in Corona del Mar at 7am.
