With preparations underway for Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, getting around Hollywood is going to be a pain. Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Orange has been closed all week, as the Dolby Theater (former Kodak Theater) gets ready for Oscar.

If you’re heading into Hollywood from the 101 Freeway, avoid the Highland Ave exit. Use Cahuenga, Vine or Gower instead.  If you are taking the canyon roads to travel between Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley, Coldwater Canyon or (to the west), Benedict Canyon or Beverly Glen will be a better bet than Laurel Canyon.  Clean up following the Academy Awards on Sunday, March 2, will last another day or so. By Wednesday March 5, traffic in Hollywood should be back to normal.
