Motorists planning to drive through Hollywood could run into traffic delays and streets closures Saturday as opponents of President Donald Trump gather for one in a series of protests being held across the country.

Participants in the protest are expected to begin gathering at 3 p.m. at Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in front of the Hollywood & Highland shopping center. There is also expected to be a circular march through the streets of Hollywood, with the procession ending back at Hollywood & Highland.

The local protest is organized by Refuse Fascism L.A., although an array of other groups are expected to take part.

Similar gatherings are planned in cities including New York, Philadelphia, Houston and Atlanta.

It was unclear if any extended streets closures are planned in the area. A Hollywood business group warned area merchants to anticipate rolling closures as protesters march east on Hollywood Boulevard, south on Vine Street, west on Sunset Boulevard and north on Cahuenga Boulevard back to Hollywood Boulevard.
