2 Streets Will Close for Bush Motorcade

Vice President George Bush’s scheduled visit to a political rally Sunday in Woodland Hills will result in the closing of sections of two streets for much of the day, Los Angeles police said.

Bush, the Republican presidential candidate, and his wife, Barbara, are expected to arrive at Warner Park between 10:45 and 11 a.m. to take part in the scheduled 2-hour rally.

Police said they are preparing for up to 30,000 people to attend the rally at the park in the 5800 block of Topanga Canyon Boulevard.

Sgt. David Wheeler said police will close two streets near the park for Bush’s motorcade. He said Califa Street will be closed on the north side of the park between Owensmouth Avenue and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, and Vassar Avenue will be closed between Califa and Oxnard Street.


Wheeler said the streets will be closed at 6 a.m. and will not reopen until after the rally has concluded and the candidate has left the area. The route of Bush’s motorcade was not disclosed.

A state Department of Transportation spokesman said the Topanga Canyon Boulevard, Canoga Avenue and De Soto Avenue exit ramps from the Ventura Freeway will be open.
