NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- At least a million people are expected to hit the streets for Sunday's Pride March and other WorldPride events, which means plenty of changes for drivers and commuters. Below are the routes, road closures and subway changes.

NYC Pride March
NYPD

The March down Fifth Ave. marking Stonewallís 50th anniversary, starts noon at 26th St. Sunday but much of Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Aves. is already closed and won't reopen until 1 a.m. Monday. If you must drive use the far east avenues or the FDR.

In Brooklyn there's a Pride event on Flatbush and Atlantic Aves. all day Sunday. In the evening, expect celebrations on Park Slope's Fifth Ave., and in Queens, Jackson Heights' Roosevelt Ave. all night, leading to traffic turbulence.
