Street Closures For Sunday's L.A. Marathon
The L.A. Marathon is upon us again, in spite of ruining everyone's brunch last year. This year's 26.2 miles brings plenty of runners, but also a lot of street closures. The marathon begins at Dodgers Stadium and runs through Hollywood and WeHo before ending oceanside in Santa Monica. Over near Dodgers Stadium, closures begin as early at 4 a.m. Sunday morning. Closer to the end of the course, closures begin around 5 a.m. Surrounding the course, some streets will be local access only during the run and some freeway ramps will be affected. The race itself begins at 6:55 a.m. As the runners move across town, streets will open back up.
You can find a complete list of on-course closures here, off-course closures here and affected Freeway ramps here.
And here's a map of the closures:
For those intending to use Metro on Sunday either near the race or to spectate, you can view closures and shuttle information here. Rail service is not affected by the Marathon.
