CicLAvia is back, and this time it's taking place in the heart of Los Angeles. The downtown event will be the last of its kind in the city this year, and it's sure to bring traffic woes to those who don't go car-free. It's scheduled to begin 9 a.m. Sunday. Roads are expected to reopen at 4 p.m.

Wait, it looks like CicLAvia is happening on Broadway near Dodgers Stadium. 

Yes, the Dodgers face the Braves on Sunday at 5 p.m., and the street closure on Broadway for CicLAvia might spell trouble for commuters coming from that area.

But, organizers at CicLAvia say there won't be much change to the event in that area. According to a press release sent out by CicLAvia organizers, here's what was decided to help alleviate possible traffic:

To ensure the best possible day for both sets of fans, LADOT and LAPD will closely monitor the flow of vehicle traffic to Dodgers Stadium Sunday afternoon in real time. Depending upon that flow, the projected 4 p.m. re-opening time of Broadway in Chinatown may be adjusted to allow for vehicle traffic. 

Gates at Dodgers Stadium open at 2 p.m.
