Traffic and parking will be banned on numerous Boston streets in the days leading up to and including Patriots’ Day on Monday, when the Boston Marathon will be run.

The city’s transportation department advised travelers to use public transit, which will have some marathon-related closures, diversions and schedule changes of its own. For details about the MBTA's service this weekend and Monday, click here.

Below is a list provided by the city that details which streets will see traffic and parking bans and when.

The city also said in a statement that: “In the interest of public safety, the Boston Police Department reserves the right to change these restrictions at any time.”
