The Los Angeles Department of Transportation
prepares and implements special traffic management plans to
regulate excess traffic and mitigate the imapct of street
closures associated with special events. LADOT does not grant
approvals for the events.
Special event approvals come from
two different agencies within the City:
• Police Commission grants Special Event
Permits for parades and public assemblies
• Bureau of Street Services reviews Special Event Permits
for all other types of special events except
Contact information for each of these groups
can be obtained by clicking on the web links listed above.
Notifications of large upcoming special events
are posted on the Los Angeles Department of Transportation’s
Traffic Surveillance And Control website. The special
events are listed under “Special
Event Info” and maps and descriptions of major events
are also posted under "Special Event Maps".
