Four more Denver street segments will close to cars, for the most part, the city government announced Thursday.

The announcement follows the closure of four other roads last weekend intended to let people walk, bike and roll more freely as parks and sidewalks get more crowded with people trying to cure cabin fever.

Here's where you can expect the closures:

  • Irving Street from Second Avenue to Gill Place
  • Bolling Drive from Chambers Road to Dillon Street
  • Marion Parkway from Virginia Avenue to Downing Street/Bayaud Avenue
  • Bayaud Avenue from Sherman to Downing Streets

"Areas being looked at first are neighborhoods with greater population densities where there's a greater need for space and where adjacent parks are seeing significant use and reaching capacity," the city's website states. "Areas of the city that don't have immediate access to a park or trail are also being prioritized."
