President Obama will be returning to LA on October 24 – this time to court Latino supporters – and their money. He’ll also be making an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno – so now even the Valley people will even get a dose of Obamajam traffic.
- President arrives at 4:45pm 10/24/2011 at LAX
- Usually he is helicoptered to the VA from where the motorcade departs
- He will motorcade across the Westside to sometime between 5pm and 6pm to two seperate events in Hancock Park – Santa Monica, Sunset, Olympic, Pico, Wilshire are all subject to rolling closures
- He usually stays at the Beverly Hilton. So sometime around 9-10pm he’ll probably head back from Hancock Park
Metro has not provided bus advisories yet – but they will release as the afternoon continues.
Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus is alerting riders to delays on routes 1, 2, 3, 8, and 12.
We’re still piecing together the sparse details but here’s what we have so far:
Obama will attend a dinner in Hancock Park at the home of “Hitch” producer James Lassiter in the “late afternoon” according to the Hollywood Reporter. That means he will most likely arrive mid-afternoon sometime between 2 and 3pm.
After that he will attend another fundraising gala at the “nearby” home of Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas.
This means he will probably arrive sometime between 2pm and 3:30pm at LAX, from which he will be helicoptered to the VA. From there the motorcade will cross the westside prompting rolling closures of streets, likely Santa Monica, Sunset, Wilshire, Pico and Olympic.
When in town, he usually stays at the Beverly Hilton, so his motorcade will prompt more rolling street closures sometime between 8 and 10.
He is also scheduled to make an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. That will also require street closures in the Burbank Media District and NBC Studios area, especially along streets like Alameda and Olive. The Tonight Show tapes in the early afternoon – so traffic impacts will occur sometime between 3pm and 6pm.
