HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — Street closures will begin early in preparation of the 2013 Academy Awards at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Streets and sidewalks surrounding the Hollywood & Highland Center have already been closed to traffic, including Orchid Alley, off of Orange Drive, the north sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard from Highland Avenue and curb lanes on Hollywood and Orange.

To accommodate the construction of press risers, fan bleachers and pre-show stages, Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Orange Drive will be closed at 10 p.m. on Feb. 17. The street will remained closed until 6 a.m. on Feb. 26.

Metro’s Red Line will bypass the Hollywood & Highland Station after the last regularly scheduled train on Feb. 23 until 6 a.m. on Feb. 25, the day after Oscar Sunday. A variety of additional streets and sidewalks will also be closed for varying periods between Feb. 17 and Feb. 24.
