Doylestown Borough continues its recurring schedule of Pedestrian Zones to facilitate expanded and safe outdoor dining and shopping.
Doylestown, PA - Residents, visitors, and local businesses have expressed their enthusiasm for the Pedestrian Zones that have rotated through the downtown since June. These temporary road closures have brought much-needed support to the businesses on the impacted blocks and have provided a safe environment for friends and family to get out and enjoy all that Doylestown has to offer.
Given the success of the Pedestrian Zones, the Borough anticipates the efforts continuing as we navigate the road to recovery following the impacts of COVID-19. Businesses and government officials are working hard to ensure that these efforts remain safe to the community and do not create unnecessary risk. At the same time, the support for our local business community remains critical in these difficult economic times.
Next up on the calendar for Doylestown is a closure of N. Main Street on Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12. The block of Main Street between State Street and Court Street is scheduled to close from 5:00 PM - 11:00 PM each night. By opening up the roads, opportunities are created for businesses with otherwise limited space, or capacity, to expand their operations in a safe and socially-distanced manner. In addition to the Pedestrian Zone, locals and visitors can expect an expansion of outdoor seating and shopping opportunities throughout the entire downtown.
Temporary detours will be in place for traffic and free parking will remain available in the County Parking Garage at the corner of Broad & Union streets. Parking will also be available at the new County Parking Facility at nearby Broad and Court for a modest fee. Social distancing remains a critical part of our fight against the spread of COVID-19. Pedestrians will be expected to maintain a safe distance between one another. Face masks are encouraged when not seated for dining.
The Doylestown community is working hard to create a safe environment and opportunities to support our neighbors. Our local shops, restaurants, services, and cultural destinations need your support now. We invite you to explore Doylestown and discover what makes our small town so special.
