From The Huffington Post: More on Pres. Obama's LA Visit Today

The Huffington Post   

President Barack Obama is back in Los Angeles on Monday to attend two Hollywood fundraisers in the Hancock Park neighborhood, and he's landing at LAX just in time to take part in LA's infamous evening commute.
The night's events, at the homes of "Hitch" producer Jim Lassiter and then actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, are expected to rake in $1 million for the President's 2012 run, according to KTLA.
The following morning, President Obama is headed to Burbank to do a taped segment for Jay Leno's "Tonight Show," and is set to take off from LAX before noon.
As usual, neither the President's routes nor hotel accommodations will be disclosed by the Secret Service ahead of time out of concern for his safety, but there have been a few clues thrown out here and there for commuters to consider.
In an interview with KNX on Sunday, Councilman Rosendahl said that four different west-east boulevards are being considered as a possible route for the presidential motorcade: Sunset Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard, Olympic Boulevard and Pico Boulevard.
As for north-south routes, major streets between the 405 freeway and Highland Avenue will be temporarily closed as the motorcade rolls through, but Councilman Rosendahl took pains to emphasize to KNX that there will be no prolonged blockades: "over and over there will be no hard closures. After the president clears a certain location, they will immediately open up the streets."
