Traffic is redirected on Main Street during a January commercial shoot.

Live Downtown and have somewhere to be on Sunday? Plan your route carefully, as filming and the Grammy Awards will have a number of streets shut down.

Streets around Staples Center will be shut down from 2am on Sunday morning until approximately 10pm for the 53rd Grammy Awards.

Closures will include Figueroa Street between Venice and Olympic, Pico Boulevard between Union Avenue and Hope, Cherry Street between Pico and Olympic, 11th Street between Blaine (west of the 110) and Flower, 12th Street between Figueroa and Flower and Georgia Street between Chick Hearn Court and Olympic.

Filming for a Honda commercial will have the 4th Street Freeway closed between Beaudry and Olive from 9pm to 6am.

Showtime pilot "House of Lies" will close 5th Street between Spring and Broadway from 7pm to 6am, bringing "snow effects" to the Historic Core.
