The New York City Police Department today announced street closures related to the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon. Street closures and parking restrictions are expected to cause traffic delays. The use of public transportation is highly recommended.
Beginning at midnight on Sunday, November 6th the upper level of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic. At approximately 7 a.m. rolling street closures will commence along the route in preparation for the marathon. Prior to taking their starting positions on Staten Island, runners will be screened and their bags inspected. The New York Road Runners has provided the participants with clear bags to expedite this process. Individuals who require event credentials and special access to secure areas, such as organizers, volunteers and other personnel, have been pre-screened in addition to the physical screening they will receive on Sunday.
