With the downtown area now open for all kinds of new sidewalk patios – the tussle between cars and people might get a little tense.

The city has made some adjustments to parking and use of the sidewalks – there may be changes and there may be more.

Sidewalk sections, some on-street parking has been closed: specifically areas of Brant Street, John Street and Lakeshore Road in Downtown Burlington

Some on-street parking and one traffic lane on Lakeshore Road has been closed to accommodate downtown physical distancing on:

Brant Street – west side from Wendell Clark’s Classic Grill & Bar, 380 Brant St. to Pine Street

John Street – east side from Lakeshore Road to Pine Street

Lakeshore Road – north side from Elizabeth Street to Locust Street

A new pedestrian walkway has been created on the roadway in these areas and sidewalk traffic is being redirected to the walkway. The walkways include ramps at each entry/exit point to accommodate accessibility.

On-street parking on John Street and Brant Street has been removed and one westbound travel lane on Lakeshore Road in the areas where the sidewalk patios are being installed.
