Guide to the Oscars: Street & Neighborhood Logistics Edition

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Over the week and a half, we've told you about various neighborhood-related restrictions due to the Oscars. Because they are scattered throughout our archives, we're bringing them here to you in one succinct post.

  • Street & Sidewalk Closures: As of Friday, Hollywood and Highland boulevards are now closed to vehicles with some sidewalk closures. By Saturday, more vehicle and pedestrian access around Hollywood and Highland will be restricted. On Sunday, a handful of streets will be closed, stretching from La Brea to Wilcox and from Franklin to Sunset. Full details, day by day are posted here.
  • Parking: As if parking is already tough in Hollywood, no stopping and tow zones will be found throughout the neighborhood. Pay attention to signs and realize that the Highland paring garage will be off limits. Full details are here.
  • Subway/Buses: And if you need to take the bus or subway, things will be a little out of whack. Buses that use closed streets will be detoured and the Metro Red Line subway will stay on schedule, but will skip the Hollywood/Highland station. Full details are here.
  • Freeway: Traffic tends to be light in the area, but the north- and southbound 101 Freeway off-ramps will be closed for most of Sunday. Full details are here.
