Downtowners should be prepared for some heavy traffic and huge claws next week. Grand Avenue, a common route into the heart of Downtown, will be closed between First and Second streets for most of the week. That’s because the upcoming blockbuster Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be staging a fan event at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Wednesday, June 13, which will culminate in an early screening of the movie.
Even though the event is only for one day, that block of Grand Avenue will be closed from 11 p.m. on Sunday, June 10, through 5 a.m. on Friday, June 15. Drivers should seek alternate routes. The upside to the traffic closure, if there is one, is that some tickets to the screening will be given away, and the Fan Fest includes attractions such as faux dinosaurs and giant velociraptor Legos.
