Prepare for LA Marathon Street Closures March 24


The Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 24, could affect commutes to Cedars-Sinai.

The Los Angeles Marathon will be held Sunday, March 24, and could affect commutes to Cedars-Sinai.

Numerous street closures will begin at 4 a.m., including some freeway ramps. For much of the day, the only ways to cross the marathon route will be on the 405, 101 or 110 freeways.

Physicians headed to the medical center that morning are advised to arrive before 5 a.m., when most of the road closures near Cedars-Sinai will begin. Most roads close to the medical center should reopen by early afternoon.

The course runs from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica, passing just north and west of Cedars-Sinai.

Streets and freeway ramps near the course will close from as early as 4 a.m. until the afternoon. The best access to the medical center for those coming from north of the marathon route will be from the 10 Freeway, exiting at Robertson or La Cienega boulevards.

The marathon's website includes an interactive map of street closures associated with the race.
