A trio of high-volume events in and around Hollywood this weekend has officials expecting traffic to be more clustered than usual. 

Traffic is expected to bunch up as the "Ghostbusters" revamp premiers at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Saturday, while events at the Hollywood Bowl and the Ford Amphitheater will be drawing crowds of their own. 

Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and North Orange Drive between 2 a.m. Saturday and 1 a.m. Sunday. Traffic in the area will be rerouted, but if you don't need to drive near Hollywood and Highland, you might want to find a different route.

The Hollywood Bowl is drawing crowds for its "Star Trek - in Concert" show this weekend, while the singer Aloe Blacc is performing at Ford Amphitheater. Both events begin at 8 p.m.

A press release from the office of L.A. City Councilman Mitch O'Farrell said Caltrans will be posting traffic delays on digital signs along the 101, and the L.A. Department of Transportation will deploy officers to aid with the flow of traffic.
