The Oscars are on Sunday & the Street Closures are Now

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If you live or travel near the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, the street is getting a little crowded with the Academy Awards set up. As of yesterday, all lanes of Hollywood Boulevard are closed from the southeast corner of Orange Drive to Highland Avenue and will be until at least a week from today at 6 a.m. There are more closures, too, as we get closer to the ceremony on Sunday.

Also, Metro Red Line subway trains will not stop at the Hollywood/Highland station all day Sunday for security purposes. If you need to get near Hollywood and Highland for some reason, you've gotta walk back from Hollywood/Vine.
