PLEASE NOTE: there is an AMGEN sponsored California Cycle Race which will pass through downtown very close to the school on Sunday. Consequently, there will be street closures on Sunset and Cesar Chavez, up Grand to Temple. We have made arrangements with the people running it to let through people who say they are going to the high school (VAPA).
Anyone coming from Main and Temple can come up Temple, past the Cathedral, and then speak to a Police Officer about letting them onto Grand (over the freeway). Robert Sanchez, the gentleman from Traffic said there will definitely be street closures from 10 AM - 11:30 AM... but folks can watch NBC Sports Live to see when the race finishes. As soon as the race is over the streets will become unblocked. The 101-South Off ramp at Temple will remain open. If you're coming North bound on the 101 please try to get off at around Main and Temple and go up Temple.
To get onto campus, I am requesting that the Grand Ave Gate (next to the 101) be opened to allow drivers onto campus – the corner of Cesar Chavez and Grand IS part of the cycle route and will be completely blocked off – and that the Cesar Chavez Gate also be opened for folks to then drive off the service road and into the Parking Complex (for the City LA Ballet Company).
You can see the whole race route at: http://wpc.0ad2.edgecastcdn.net/000AD2/atoc/2012/ATOC-Special-Section_spread.pdf on PAGE 5; you can hit Control+ to increase the magnification of the image.
