Obama's L.A. visit: Streets to avoid as motorcade takes over for Day 2

President Obama's motorcade will strike again Friday before heading back to Los Angeles International Airport in the afternoon.

The good news for commuters is that the series of road closures will start just as the morning rush hour ebbs and should be done before the evening commute gets underway.


For those who won't be stuck in the office Friday, Los Angeles police recommended avoiding the following areas to keep from getting stuck in traffic as Obama's motorcade darts from Point A to Point B on the Westside.

Obama's itinerary includes another Democratic National Committee fundraiser, after which he's scheduled to arrive at Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas, where he's expected to announce an executive order carving out about half the Angeles National Forest to create the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument.

Here's the list of areas to avoid:

Wilshire Boulevard between Veteran and Comstock avenues, from 9-11 a.m.

Beverly Glen Boulevard between Ashton Avenue and Bellagio Road, from 9-11 a.m.

Sunset Boulevard between Hilgard Avenue and Carolwood Drive, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Beverly Glen Boulevard between Bellagio Road and Pico Boulevard, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Pico Boulevard between Prosser Avenue and Century Park East, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

A "hard closure" will remain in place along Hilgard Avenue between Le Conte and Weyburn avenues until 6 p.m.
