NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Major street closures are on tap for Sunday as riders will take part in the annual Five Boro Bike Tour.

– The Staten Island-bound lower level of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge between 11:11 a.m. and 4:20 p.m.
Officials warn the closure times are estimates, and that drivers should allow extra time for travel.
