Boston Sidewalks Extended To Help Pedestrians With Social Distancing

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — At Harvard and Beacon Street in Brookline, cones are set up to extend sidewalks so pedestrians can walk while social distancing.

So far, the response has been positive.

"I think it's been a huge help, it lets us walk around a little more safely," Debbie, a local doctor, said. "It also helps with the traffic, so that the cars aren't swerving in and out."

Debbie also believes more cities and towns should adopt this method. She said, "more space will be good for people."

The City of Boston is looking at extending sidewalks on Center Street in Jamaica Plain, Codman Square in Dorchester, Meridian Street in East Boston, and Newbury Street in Back Bay.
