Don’t get towed on Marathon Sunday

Map from L.A. Marathon

Sunday’s L.A. Marathon will mean detours and delays and the risk of getting your car towed if you don’t pay attention to the temporary No Parking signs. The first marathoners (those in wheelchairs) leave the stadium at 6:30 am, but some streets and freeway ramps will be closed as early as 3 am on Sunday. Some streets will be accessible only to residents.

Metro and DASH bus riders should also prepare for service being disrupted or halted for part of the day.

Echo Park shooting

Police are investigating reports of a shooting that took place shortly after 4 pm on Saturday in the 1600 block of Lake Shore Avenue in Echo Park. So far there is no sign that anyone was hit or that any property was damaged. The Eastsider (Posted on Saturday, March 17 7:34 pm)
