Oscar Prep Forces Hollywood Street Closures

HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — Hollywood Boulevard near the Kodak Theatre will be closed most of next week as preparations begin for the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony.

The street will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive at 10 p.m. Sunday, then reopen at 6 a.m. Monday. It will be closed again at 10 p.m. Monday, and remain closed until 6 a.m. March 1.

Various other streets and sidewalks in the area will be closed at differing times during the week leading up to the Feb. 27 Oscar ceremony. Metro subway traffic will also be affected the weekend of the event, with Red Line trains bypassing the Hollywood and Highland station all day Feb. 27, with service resuming the morning of Feb. 28.

A complete list of street and sidewalk closures is available at oscars.org.

    LAPD should run the drug sniffing dogs around the cars there! I would not be surprised at the amount of illegal drugs they would find which belong to these stars and there entourage that hangs around them instead of sheltering them like there good noble citizens over half of the people that attend are drug addicts.And it shows with the less stellar performances year after year after year Hollywood stinks with exception of a very few actors and actresses therethe rest I would not pay a dime to see
