Two 101 Freeway Off-Ramps to be Closed Sunday for the Oscars

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible 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.

Logistics, logistics, logistics! The Oscars every year make traveling around Hollywood a bit difficult with all the street/sidewalk closures, parking restrictions and public transit adjustments.

Today, Caltrans announced how the annual brouhaha is affecting their jurisdiction. On Sunday, both the north- and southbound 101 Freeway Highland Avenue off-ramps will be closed from 10 a.m. to midnight.

In our experience, traffic tends to be light in the area because everyone avoids the area like sin (except those Westboro protestors), so exiting the freeway at Cahuenga or Vine shouldn't be too much of a problem. If you plan to stay home and watch, try making the official Oscar cocktail.
