Obama to visit USC on Friday: Here's the traffic plan
President Obama will speak at USC on Friday at 1:30 pm.
The president's last visit to Los Angeles caused traffic snarls, which the LAPD, the California Highway Patrol, the Department of Transportation and the U.S. Secret Service are attempting to avoid this time. Here is a list of street closures for Friday:
Martin Luther King Boulevard will be closed between Figueroa Street and Vermont Avenue to through traffic from 9:30 a.m. to 11:25 a.m. and to all traffic from 11:25 a.m. until 2:50 p.m.
Vermont Avenue will be closed between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Exposition Boulevard to through traffic, 9:30 to 11:25 a.m., and all traffic, 11:25 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.
Figueroa Street will be closed between Martin Luther King Boulevard and 39th Street to through traffic, 9:30 to 11:25 a.m., and all traffic from 11:25 a.m. until 2:50 p.m.
Exposition Boulevard will be closed to all traffic between Vermont Avenue and Figueroa from 11:25 a.m. until 2:50 p.m.
The rally at USC is aimed at energizing voters for the midterm election. Ozomatli and Jamie Foxx are scheduled to perform at the rally, which has moved to a larger space on the campus to accommodate crowds. Democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown and Sen. Barbara Boxer also will be in attendance.
