LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Officials announced the street closures in effect for Sunday's Los Angeles Marathon, whose course will make its way through the city for the 32nd time.

The 26.2-mile race started at 6:30 a.m. and began its route from Dodger Stadium to end in Santa Monica.

Streets along the route closed at 3:15 a.m. Saturday and will re-open as early as 10:15 a.m. Sunday.

Metro will offer rail service to Santa Monica, near the finish line, thanks to the Expo Line extension. Metro said it will also be increasing service every nine minutes with three-car trains to accommodate the expected spike in riders.

Many bus routes will be detoured as well.

The city's transportation department will be enforcing a no-parking policy for some streets on the route.

The finish line for the marathon is Ocean Avenue and California Avenue, roughly six blocks from the downtown Santa Monica stop on the Expo Line.

The full list of street closures and the full route are available at www.lamarathon.com or trafficinfo.lacity.org.
