Westside Street Closure Information for LA Marathon

The Office of Councilmember Bill Rosendahl wants to remind constituents of the road closures planned  during one of the biggest events in the City of Los Angeles.

The Honda LA Marathon is taking place this Sunday morning (March 18) and will stretch 26.2 miles —  from Dodger Stadium to the sea. The marathon will pass  some of LA’s world-famous landmarks and draw hundreds of thousands of spectators along the course to cheer their favorite runner to the finish line.

A complete list of street closures can be found here and here.

Here are some things you should know about the marathon and how the race might impact driving and parking in the 11th Council District on Saturday and Sunday.

Closures will begin along the entire course prior to the race start and will occur on a rolling basis. All route roads will be closed by 6:00am. The races begin at 7:00am and streets will reopen on a rolling basis shortly after the last participant has passed.
