Verrazano Bridge Closed Today for New York City Marathon

1

verrazanoGoing to Brooklyn today? Better leave early or take a much longer route. To accommodate the New York City Marathon, the upper level of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge will be closed in both directions from 12:01 a.m. through 3 p.m. today.  The lower level will be closed in both directions from about 7 a.m. until about 3 p.m.

Staten Island Expressway ramps and local roads closest to the bridge and the Fort Wadsworth starting line will be closed during this time as well.

Alternatives include leaving the car at home altogether and taking the Staten Island Ferry, or taking one of the New Jersey bridges to the Holland or Lincoln tunnels into Manhattan.
