2011 Academy Awards: Hollywood street closures

Watch for street closures on 2011 Oscar Sunday, Feburary 27th.

I hate running into unexpected traffic jams or closed streets.  For the all fun and glitz of the 2011 Academy Awards, no doubt some unexpecting motorist will be inconvenienced by the massive crowds in and around the corner of Hollywood & Highland.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the City of Los Angeles have finalized 2011 Academy Award street closure plans around the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

To accommodate the construction of press risers, fan bleachers and pre-show stages along the Academy Awards red carpet, Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive beginning at 10 p.m. on Sunday, February 20.  It will reopen at 6 a.m. on February 21, close again at 10 p.m. that same day, and then remain closed until 6 a.m. on Tuesday, March 1.

MTA subway trains will bypass the Hollywood & Highland station after the last regularly scheduled train on Saturday, February 26, until 6 a.m. Monday, February 28.  Service at the station will resume with the first scheduled train after 6 a.m.

Between Sunday, February 20, and Sunday, February 27, the day of the Academy Awards presentation, additional streets and sidewalks will be closed for varying periods.

Details of the closures and maps of affected areas are available from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the Sixth and the Thirteenth District City Council field offices, at, and on the Academy's website at
