Street Closures and Construction Embargoes for the New York City Marathon
The annual New York City Marathon is this weekend, which means any construction work occurring along the route has been suspended until after the race. The Department of Transportation will allow emergency work to go forward, but everything else is on hold until 11:59 p.m. on November 3. If you live anywhere there is an embargo, look forward to a weekend free of the racket of jackhammers and clanging metal.
The marathon passes through all five boroughs, starting on Staten Island then winding through Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx before landing in Central Park. Below is the list of streets affected by the embargo.
Along with stopped construction, try to stay away from these stretches of road on Sunday. The city will close them at 8 a.m., and they won't open again to car traffic until 6 p.m.
For updates and other traffic advisories check the Department of Transportation's website.
