Get ready for some Traffic this Sunday! City of Los Angeles traffic officials today released the complete list of street closures affected by this Sunday's sold-out Los Angeles Marathon, which has developed an extremely popular Stadium to Sea route. Portions of the race begin shortly before 7 a.m., but street closures across the city and three other cities--West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica--will begin during the 3 a.m. hour. Roads will be opened in sequence where parts of the race have ended.

And be warned, posted no-parking signs for the marathon will be strictly enforced, says LADOT. Vehicles in violation will be cited and impounded.

Events on Sunday begin at 6:55 a.m. for wheelchairs, 7:00 a.m. for hand cycles and 7:24 a.m. for all other participants. An accompanying 5K run event will be held at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, March 20 at 8 a.m.
