Obama Traffic Update from - 2:27pm

Obama Traffic, Street Closures in Los Angeles, Corona del Mar for February 15, 16, 2012

Update 2:27pm

The rumors about President Obama being helicoptered to Cheviot Hills are sounding a bit more likely.

Reader Marjorie just wrote to us and said:

Possible that he will be helicoptered over near Cheviot Hills, streets are quiet over here (no road blocks seen, cops, signs, etc) and we didn’t hear any military aircraft do there checks before hand like we normally do.

Thanks for the tip!

Update 1:43pm (2-15-2012)

We’ve heard from a couple of readers that Rancho Park /Cheviot Hills park is closed and their children’s activities have been cancelled. We’re not sure why. The rumor is that the president may be helicoptered there, although we feel that is probably unlikely.

Update 9:12am (2-15-2012)

Looks like some rain could further complicate traffic matters when President Obama visits for fundraising this afternoon in Los Angeles.

The White House has released his schedule for today. As we previously predicted, Obama will arrive around 4pm at LAX. He is scheduled to speak at the event at 6:10pm. So he will most likely be affecting trafffic on the westside between 4:45pm and 5:45pm.

We’ve also got the street closures Obama’s visit to Corona del Mar on Thursday:

  • Seaward Road from East Coast Highway to Driftwood Road
  • Evening Canyon Road from Morning Canyon Road to Shorecliff Road
  • Driftwood Road from Morning Canyon to Shorecliff Road
  • Morning Canyon Road from East Coast Highway to Shorecliff Road
  • Shorecliff Road

Those streets will be closed from 6am until Noon. Any vehicle parked on those streets will be towed.

See below for info and maps about other major routes that may be affected by President Obama’s visit.


President Obama will be returning to Los Angeles for fundraising on Wednesday, February 15.

Then he’ll go south to Orange County to attend an event in Corona del Mar on Thursday, February 16.

You know what this means — many street closures and delays as the presidential motorcade goes to and fro.

The good news this time is that he won’t have to travel as far as usual, so the traffic impact should be lighter. Also, most closures are expected to be “rolling” which means police pick up the barricades as soon as the President’s motorcade has passed.

Here’s what we have so for as we continue to piece together the closures. These are our best assumptions taking in to account past visits and current info. This is highly subject to change!

  • Sometime after 3pm: President arrives at LAX
  • Sometime between 3:45 and 4:15pm: President will be helicoptered from LAX to the VA
  • Sometime between 4:15pm and 5pm: President will be driven across the westside to the fundraiser at the home of soap opera mogul Bradley Bell in the Holmby Hills / Beverly Hills area. Will Ferrell will host. Major east-west streets most likely to be affected are Sunset and Wilshire.
  • Sometime between 8pm and 9pm: President will likely return to Beverly Hilton hotel to spend the night. This may occur even earlier as the President is attending a breakfast fundraiser in Corona del Mar at 7am.

In addition to street closures, bus routes most likely to be affected include 2, 702, 4, 704, 20 and 720.

Here’s the big question mark – President Obama will be attending a breakfast at the home of Jeff and Nancy Stack in Corona del Mar at 7am.

It is unclear if President Obama will travel via car or via helicopter to Newport Beach. Newport Beach police did tell the Orange County Register that they are working with the Secret Service but no route has been planned.

Because it is so early, it shouldn’t disrupt traffic too badly.

That being said, the following major roads are MOST LIKELY to be disrupted:

  • 405 between West LA and Costa Mesa/Irvine
  • 73 between 405 and Newport Coast Dr
  • Newport Coast Dr
  • Jamboree Road
  • Macarthur Blvd
  • San Joaquin Hills Rd
  • Pacific Coast Highway (1)

There’s a chance that the President may be helicoptered somewhere like John Wayne Airport and then driven the final stretch.

OCTA bus routes most likely to be affected include 1, 57, 76, and 79.
