Oscar Week Street Closures Finalized

As the Oscars ceremony draws near, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the city of Los Angeles have finalized the street closure plans for the area around the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood and Highland. The closures are aimed at ensuring public safety, supporting security strategies and facilitating the production of the awards.

In order to allow for the construction of press risers, fan bleachers and pre-show stages on the red carpet, Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive from 10 p.m. Feb. 23 and 6 a.m. March 4. Additional streets and sidewalks will be closed between Feb. 23 and March 2, but the timing of these closures will vary.

Public transportation will also be impacted. MTA subway trains will bypass the Hollywood and Highland station after the last regularly scheduled train on March 1. Service at the station will resume with the first scheduled train after 6 a.m. March 3.

More details about closures can be found on the Academy’s website.

The Academy Awards will be broadcasted live from the Dolby Theatre on March 2 on ABC.
