LA Marathon Road Closures: What You Need To Know This Sunday:

Sunday’s 30th annual Los Angeles Marathon will again mean dozens of miles of temporary no parking, tow-away lanes, and closed roads from Dodger Stadium to the sea.

Street closings at the eastern end of the course were planned to start at 3:15 a.m. Sunday for the early stages, and those downtown-area streets were planned to reopen as early as 10:20 a.m. Closures further west on the course will begin and end later.

Cars parked along the marathon route will be ticketed, towed and impounded.

The Marathon begins at Dodger Stadium and ends at the Santa Monica Pier. North-south traffic across the race will be restricted to four major crossing points, the Hollywood (101), Harbor (110) and San Diego (405) freeways, and under the finish line on Pacific Coast Highway at Santa Monica.
