ECHO PARK — Judging from tonight’s traffic, Beyoncé is far more popular than the Dodgers. Fans headed to her 7:30 p.m. concert at Dodger Stadium are pouring over into narrow side streets. Motorists are yelling and honking in stalled traffic on Echo Park Avenue and an ambulance had a difficult time to make its way through the jam.
Judging from Google’s Live Traffic Maps, wayward fans are also clogging streets in Elysian Heights — far from the stadium entrances. Did Waze go wacky tonight?
Update: Traffic was so bad tonight that it forced the concert to start later than scheduled, according to an email sent out by Erika Sanchez, Coordinator of Community and Government Relations for the Dodgers. “Due to the severe gridlock that we experienced at the entrances to the stadium this evening, tonight’s concert began later than was planned and, as a result, will end later than expected,” said the email. “We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused you and appreciate your understanding.”
