Over the next two weekends, two half-marathons are being held in the area, north and west of Melrose Village.
Tomorrow — Saturday, April 11th — the Hollywood Half Marathon will be held starting at Highland Ave. and Hollywood Blvd., going east all the way to Sunset Blvd. and Santa Monica Blvd. and coming west on Santa Monica Blvd. to Vermont Ave. Street closures start early in the morning, and most of the streets will be reopened by mid-morning, except right around Hollywood and Highland.
Then, on Sunday, April 19th, the Sunset Strip Half Marathon will take place mostly in West Hollywood. As you can see on the map below, this will effect Sunset Blvd. and Santa Monica Blvd. as far east as La Brea Ave. and Melrose Ave and Beverly Blvd. as far east as La Cienega Blvd. Street closures will begin early in the morning and some will continue until early afternoon.
