Several Roads, Verrazano Lower Level Closed During Today’s Five Boro Bike Tour


verrazanoThe annual TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour takes place today, and to accommodate the expected 30,000 riders taking part, a number of  roads will be closed to traffic.

The 42-mile tour, which passes through all the city’s boroughs, raps up on Staten Island, with riders entering Fort Wadsworth from the lower level of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. They’ll then be directed to the St. George Ferry Terminal.

As a result, the lower-level of the Verrazano closed at 12:01 a.m. tonight, and will reopen at approximately 6 p.m. today. The ferry terminal will be closed to all traffic except buses, which will be detoured via Richmond Terrace. Passenger pick-up and drop-off and livery cars will be temporarily re-located to Hyatt Street, between Stuyvesant Place and St. Mark’s Place.
