Road closures and resulting traffic delays are expected to continue on Friday as President Barack Obama wraps up his fundraising visit to Los Angeles.

The president and his eldest daughter Malia arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Thursday evening. His first stop was a Democratic fundraiser at the Bel Air home of Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn and his wife, Cindy, an environmental advocate.

The event featured filmmaker J.J. Abrams and singer Barbra Streisand. Actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow were among the approximately 100 people there, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat. Tickets cost $33,400 per couple.

The president's motorcade then arrived at the W Hotel in Westwood.

Obama is expected to attend three more fundraisers in California on Friday, including an event at actor Tobey Maguire's home in Brentwood.

Following that event, the president and Malia will fly from Los Angeles to San Francisco for two more fundraisers.

The Los Angeles Police Department provided the following list of areas motorists may want to avoid during the president's visit on Friday:

-- The area around Hilgard Avenue between Weyburn and Sunset, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
