Temporary Open Streets Toolkit

To aid busineses in the COVID-19 recovery, the City is looking to streamline temporary repurposing of the sidewalk and roadway for dining, customer queuing, and vehicle loading. The following toolkit provides a basic overview of options available for businesses to create temporary changes to the public right-of-way. Please click on each icon to see a detailed drawing with dimensions and traffic control requirements for each option. Please submit your open streets requests to your BID/BIA (if applicable) or via the interest form.
