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.
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.
Road Closures 3am – 5pm
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.
No freeways will be closed on race day; however a few freeway ramps will be closed. Please see http://www.lamarathon.com for info.
Tow Away Zones
Please adhere to dates and times posted on streets as “No Parking — Tow Away Zones.” These will be strictly
enforced and vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense. No Parking Streets along the race course will be marked with “No Parking” signs approximately 72 hours before the event. Vehicles in violation will be ticketed and towed at the owners’ expense.
