Vice President Joseph Biden will be attending several Democratic party fundraisers in Los Angeles on Monday and Tuesday, which means local residents can expect traffic to be affected.

The vice president's events on Monday include an event for the Braley Senate Victory Fund at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel at 5:15 p.m. and an event for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at a private residence at 7:30 p.m.

The Los Angeles Police Department listed the following areas that will be impacted by traffic:

Monday

Tuesday

Police said they did not expect any significant impacts to bus routes.

Biden's visit will come on the heels of a trip earlier in the day to Las Vegas, where he will headline a Democratic campaign rally, with a downtown appearance to talk about raising the minimum wage, according to the Associated Press.

Last week, U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez raised the minimum wage for employees of federal contractors to $10.10 an hour. President Barack Obama is urging private employers to also raise the minimum wage from the current $7.25, AP reports.

Obama is expected to make stops in Los Angeles later this week.
