Street Closures

The TCS New York City Marathon course is completely closed to vehicular traffic during the race; a schedule of street closures is shown below.

Sweep buses will follow the marathon route at a 6 1/2-hour marathon pace, roughly 15 minutes per mile, after the final wave start. After the sweep buses pass, and it's deemed by city authorities, the streets will reopen to traffic.
