Street Closings and Parking Bans Planned for Sunday’s LA Marathon

LA Marathon 2019 route through West Hollywood

If you aren’t going to be running on Sunday you might consider walking. That’s because the annual L.A. Marathon is going to result in the closing of lots of streets to traffic

from downtown Los Angeles all the way to Santa Monica.

The 26.2-mile race will begin at 6:30 a.m. at Dodger Stadium in Elysian Park and is expected to continue into the early afternoon.

The runners will enter West Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard at La Brea Avenue and head west along Sunset until they arrive at San Vicente Boulevard. At that point, they will head south along San Vicente until arriving at Santa Monica Boulevard. From there they will head west and then turn left onto Doheny Drive. At Burton Way, the runners will turn right to head west into Beverly Hills.

Some streets in West Hollywood will be closed from 4 a.m.to 2 p.m.

— Sunset Boulevard between Havenhurst and Doheny Drive

— San Vicente Boulevard between Sunset Boulevard and Melrose Avenue

— Santa Monica Boulevard between La Cienega Boulevard and Doheny Drive

— Doheny Drive between Santa Monica and Beverly boulevards

In West Hollywood there will be no parking allowed along the marathon route (No parking signs will be posted prior to the event.)

If you are visiting West Hollywood to watch the marathon, you can find a directory of municipal lots and parking structures online.  You can find a complete map of the marathon route and other information on the LA Marathon website.

There are plenty of 26 mile stretches of land where marathoners can run that will not create massive traffic problems for the inhabitants of Los Angeles. This routing, which inconveniences tens of thousands of taxpayers (and imprisons some along isolated communities) is solely for the benefit of a better-looking backdrop to improve Frank McCourt’s TV advertising sales. The LA Marathon routing is another classic case of L.A. corruption. What politicians are getting contributions?…. Follow the money….

The link labeled “L.A. Marathon website,” accidentally links to the WeHo parking website instead.

You would have to be pretty dumb not to figure the article out. People will b*tch about anything

Very funny conversation.
I, too, was not positive of the date, considering the date of the article.

As others have said, it is mind-boggling that the writer does not mention the date. I think it would probably be a good idea to mention the date.

It may be mind-boggling for some, but as noted before, using the day of the week to refer to something occurring within the next seven days, and using the month and numerical date to refer to something occurring after that, is and has been standard practice in American English for decades.

It would be worth mentioning that this will take place on Sunday March 23rd, 2019.

The story does note that it takes place on Sunday, which is on March 24, not March 23.

There are 52 Sundays in a year, including today when this article was posted. The mind boggling comes in when it’s so easy to include for clarity’s sake. The casual reader could read this headline and think today was the marathon….
