Roger Rodas and Paul Walker will be remembered in a memorial car meet on December 8.
The meet will be at the crash site, which is at 25690 Hercules Street in Valencia, California.
Kelly Johnson Parkway will be changed into a one-way street, along with Alta Vista Drive, reported KHTS.
Sunday’s event is open to the public to honor the lives of both Rodas and Walker.
They died in car crash at the site on November 30.
A Facebook page created for the event tells people to drive slow and be cautious. People should park along the street and “peacefully walk to light a candle or put some flowers, etc.”
The NorthPark Community Church, which is about 100 yards away from the crash site, said that it will have water, coffee, and hot chocolate available, and that people can use the restrooms inside the church.
People can also park in the church lot, though it may fill up fast.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff said in a statement that deputies understand that people are coming to the site as part of the grieving process, but urge people to obey all local laws, including obeying no parking signs.
“Many drivers are choosing to park in an unsafe manner along the curb on a street that is a curve,” it said. “This poses serious safety concerns as approaching motorists often cannot see that cars or people are there. Most of the area has ‘No Parking’ signs and other traffic signs to help prevent collisions.”
