Time For The 2016 Oscars So Street Closures

We live in LA and Hollywood. So we enjoy celebrities being in town and the award galas that follow them. What we have to put up with is the street closures and we have a week away from the Oscars to enjoy them starting this Sunday, Feb 21.

From Press release:

To accommodate the construction of press risers, fan bleachers and pre-show stages along the Oscars red carpet, Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive beginning at 10 p.m. on Sunday, February 21, and remain closed until 6 a.m. on Tuesday, March 1.

MTA subway trains will bypass the Hollywood & Highland station after the last regularly scheduled train on Saturday, February 27, until 6 a.m. Monday, February 29.  Service at the station will resume with the first scheduled train after 6 a.m.

Between Sunday, February 21, and Oscar Sunday, February 28, additional streets and sidewalks will be closed for varying periods.

Details of the closures and maps of affected areas are available from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the Sixth and the Thirteenth District City Council field offices and on the Academy's website at
