LA Street Closures For Obama Visit To USC

LOS ANGELES – It’s going to be an all-star affair on Friday when President Barack Obama comes to town, but after the traffic mess caused by his last visit, you may want to steer clear of the downtown area.

Obama will be joined by Jamie Foxx and hip-hop/rock band Ozomatli when he speaks tomorrow at the University of Southern California. The event, hosted by the USC Political Student Assembly and organized by the Democratic National Committee, is free of charge and admission is open to the public.
