Redwood City launched a new initiative by closing streets, hoping to help restaurants impacted by COVID-19.
When: The “Eat, Sip and Be in RWC” program runs every day and ends through September.
Where: See map and list of restaurants below!
“Eat, Sip and Be in RWC.” shuts down some major streets in downtown, like Broadway, so restaurants can push their tables out to the sidewalk and street.
Moving dining outdoors has become a popular strategy for cities to help keep restaurants and retailers in business. This Redwood City program also includes several signs and hand sanitizing stations along the way, reminding people to be safe.
They have also positioned hand sanitizing stations at each intersection to try and stop the spread of COVID-19.
Each street will have one open lane for emergency vehicles and pedestrians.
The closures will affect Main Street between Middlefield and Broadway, Broadway between Main and Jefferson (Jefferson open to traffic), Broadway between Jefferson and Middlefield (Middlefield open to traffic) and Theater Way, city officials said.
