On March 15, 2011 LA MARATHON LLC announced that detailed traffic information is now available for Sunday’s Honda LA Marathon presented by K-Swiss.
A comprehensive map of the route, street closures, nearby parking lots and race information is now available online at www.Commuterama.com to make planning much easier.
“It is our goal to work with each city to re-open the streets as soon as possible,” said LA MARATHON LLC chief operating officer Nick Curl. “Because the Stadium to the Sea course is a point-to-point route, we will be able to open streets more quickly than the old loop courses,” he concluded.
A simplified map of the course with approximate road re-opening times is available on the Marathon Web site at www.LAmarathon.com/community/community-info/.
Streets in downtown Los Angeles will re-open by about 10 a.m., in West Hollywood by about 1 p.m., in Beverly Hills by about 1:30 p.m. and in west Los Angeles by approximately 3 p.m. Streets in Santa Monica are expected to re-open for the most part by 5 p.m., with the finish line at Ocean and California Avenues open until 9 p.m. Sunday evening. All of the area’s freeways will be open, although some on-ramps/off-ramps will be closed.
The race will start at Dodger Stadium, with the wheelchair athletes going first at 6:53 a.m., the women’s elite field at 7:11 a.m. and the men’s elites and the rest of the field at approximately 7:29 a.m.
Detailed additional information has been compiled by the participating cities and their transit agencies, including:
