Obama Visits L.A. Sunday, Avoid These Streets

LAPD advises motorists to stay away from these streets on Sunday.

Last weekend was the return of Carmageddon. This weekend may be the return of Obamajam in some Westside neighborhoods.

President Obama will attend several events in Los Angeles on Sunday and the Los Angeles Police Department is advising motorists to stay away from those neighborhoods in the presidential motorcade's path.

The major event is an afternoon "30 Days to Victory" fundraiser concert and rally at the Nokia Theater, at L.A. Live downtown. It will feature performances by Jon Bon Jovi, Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry and Earth, Wind and Fire.

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, who delivered the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention, will speak. Rallying remarks by the president are likely at about 6 p.m.

Prior to that, the president is scheduled to arrive at an undisclosed location in the Beverly Hills area Sunday afternoon.

The president's exact itinerary has not been announced for security reasons, and it may change. The following is information from LAPD:
