President Obama to Visit West Los Angeles

May 7, 2014 - LAX & Bel Air
The President will likely arrive to LAX late morning or early afternoon before attending a function at a private
home in Bel Air, he will either travel by helicopter to an area on the west side to meet up with his motorcade
or could motorcade from LAX to Bel Air.
In either case we can expect west side traffic to be affected in and around the 405 and 10 freeway intersection,
including all surface streets in the area. Wilshire Blvd. and Sunset Blvd. could be heavily impacted.
At the conclusion of the event, it is believed the President will travel directly from Bel Air to Century City.
While these two destinations are relatively close to each other, there is the potential for severe traffic
issues on the west side during that time. The exact time of travel has not been determined.
May 7, 2014 - Century City & Beverly Hills
In the evening, the President will be appearing at the Century Plaza Hotel for an event hosted by the USC
Shoah Foundation. The reception for the event begins at 5:00 p.m. with the actual dinner starting at 6:45 p.m.
We can expect street closures throughout Century City which could cause serious traffic delays, especially
the closer his arrival occurs to 5:00 p.m.
As the President typically stays overnight in the Beverly Hilton Hotel when in Los Angeles, it is likely he will
do so at the conclusion of the event at the Century Plaza Hotel. As this will be later in the evening, this should
not have a major impact on traffic, but will include street closures in the area.
May 8, 2014 - Beverly Hills
The President will be attending a DNC function in the morning at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The President will then be attending a lunch/fundraiser at a private home in La Jolla so we can expect
additional west side traffic delays early to mid-morning as the President makes his way out of the area
to attend this event.
Again, the exact travel plans are never confirmed and the information provided could change at any time.
As with all Presidential motorcades, they will involve rolling street closures as the motorcade moves through
an area. You can expect to see Department of Transportation officers stationed throughout the west side
during the President's stay in the area.
There are always alternate routes pre-planned so just because you see DOT in a specific area, that
doesn't automatically mean those streets will be affected.
