LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Afternoon traffic delays can be expected Tuesday when President Barack Obama makes a brief visit to Los Angeles to appear on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”.

The president is scheduled to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport at 3:25 p.m. and will be in Burbank for the show’s 4:30 p.m. taping, according to the White House.

Motorists should expect a number of street closures and congestion to accommodate the president’s motorcade, although President Obama will likely be taken to Burbank by helicopter from LAX.

Although routes or security operations surrounding presidential visits are never officially provided, the Los Angeles Police Department has provided a list of areas that motorists should try to avoid during the visit.

According to the LAPD, drivers should avoid the following areas between 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.:

• Hollywood Way and San Fernando Road

• Hollywood Way and Burbank Boulevard

• Hollywood Way and Alameda

• West Olive Avenue and Buena Vista

• Sherman Way and Hayvenhurst Avenue

• Victory Boulevard and Canoga Avenue

• Canoga Avenue and Burbank Boulevard

Since the president will be spending the night in the Southland prior to flying to Camp Pendleton in San Diego County, police have also advised motorists to avoid the following areas between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday:

• Sherman Way and Hayvenhurst Avenue

• Victory Boulevard and Canoga Avenue

• Canoga Avenue and Burbank Boulevard
