The rock 'n roll-themed Sunset Strip half-marathon is happening this Sunday, meaning we're going to have a few street closures. This Sunday from 6:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., the streets listed below will be closed, CBS LA reports. That means you can't drive on them or park on them, so be sure to move your cars to avoid getting towed!

  • Santa Monica Blvd. between Robertson and La Brea Avenue.
