President Obama will be returning to Los Angeles for fundraising on Wednesday, February 15. Then he’ll go south to Orange County to attend an event in Corona del Mar on Thursday, February 16.
You know what this means – many street closures and delays as the presidential motorcade goes to and fro.
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!
