Obamajam returns to L.A. today.

But something tells us this President Obama, on his final term and begging Congress to do something, anything to support just one of his policy initiatives, isn't going to clog Los Angeles traffic like the superstar Obama of yesteryear did. In any case, police are preparing, and so should you:

Obama is scheduled to arrive at LAX on Air Force One at 3:25 p.m., according to a White House statement.

From there he's expected to head to a taping of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in Burbank, an appearance that is scheduled to air tonight.

"Security will be very, very tight," Leno said last night. "You'll be patted down more than an intern at the San Diego mayor's office."

Anywho, the LAPD is doing its best to downsize today's Obamajam.

The department released a presidential visit cheat sheet that contains streets to avoid and the time to avoid them:

On Wednesday Obama heads back to Washington after a reported trip to Camp Pendleton in San Diego County to thank troops for their service. He's scheduled to depart from LAX at 1:40 p.m. The LAPD has more streets and times to keep in mind for Wednesday:

The area around Sherman Way and Hayvenhurst Avenue from 9:30 a.m. to11:30 a.m.

The area around Victory Blvd. and Canoga Avenue from 9:30 a.m. to11:30 a.m.

The area around Canoga Avenue and Burbank Blvd. from 9:30 a.m. to11:30 a.m.

Have fun with this, Valley folk.
