Police estimates put Saturday's May Day protest in downtown at only 100,000 people (in 2006, a downtown May Day rally brought around 500,000 out, one that went down Wilshire was estimated at even more), but officials are warning of major delays as the march and rally goes up Broadway. Participants will be arriving as early as 6 a.m. with road closures beginning at 5:45 a.m. around the staging area between 11th and Olympic along Broadway.

More closures will come around 10 a.m., one hour before the march is expected to begin and head northward to between 1st and Temple where street closures will remain closed until 6 p.m. (for extremely detailed info, LADOT has it)
