LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A long list of streets and intersections will be closed Sunday for the 33rd annual Los Angeles Marathon, with the 26.2-mile ``stadium to the sea'' course taking runners from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica, via downtown Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation and other agencies will strictly enforce a restricted, non-parking policy, including citing and impounding vehicles parked on the temporarily restricted, no-parking streets, at designated times.

During the closures, the major open east-west routes will be the Santa Monica (10) Freeway; Olympic Boulevard between Santa Monica and downtown Los Angeles; Wilshire Boulevard from Santa Monica to Santa Monica Boulevard; Beverly Boulevard between Fairfax Avenue and Silver Lake Boulevard; Santa Monica Boulevard between Fairfax Avenue and Myra Avenue; and Sunset Boulevard between Pacific Palisades and Doheny Drive.

The major open north-south routes will be Bundy Drive between Olympic Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard; the San Diego (405) Freeway; Fairfax Avenue between Olympic Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard; and the Hollywood (101) and Harbor (110) freeways.

The race will start at Dodger Stadium, before heading through downtown Los Angeles, Echo Park, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Century City, West Los Angeles, Brentwood and Santa Monica.
