L.A. Marathon Means Street Closures and Transit Detours This Sunday

March 16, 2018 by Juliet Bennett Rylah

The Los Angeles Marathon is on Sunday, March 18, which means one of two things: people are going to run 26.2 miles from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica Pier, and street closures.

The street closures begin at midnight and will reopen in waves from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as runners move west. The map below shows the course and closures. For a complete list of the extensive street and freeway ramp closures, as well as suggested alternative routes, you can visit LA Marathon’s site here.

To avoid traffic headaches, we’d advise taking L.A. Metro, if possible. As Metro’s The Source notes, many of the stations provide easy access to viewing areas if you’d like to observe the so-called “Stadium to Sea” event, and Metro is adding train cars on Sunday to accommodate both Marathon-viewers and Marathon-avoiders.

Several Metro bus lines will be impacted by the marathon: 2, 4, 10, 14, 16, 20, 28, 30, 33, 40, 45, 53, 55, 60, 62, 68, 70, 71, 76, 78/79/378, 81, 83, 90/91, 92, 94, 96, 105, 180/181, 200, 201, 204, 206, 207, 210, 212/312, 217, 218, 222, 234, 237, 487/489, 534, 603, 704, 720, 733, 745, 754 and 910/950. You can view information on detours using Metro’s Service Advisories page.
