With 85 restaurants approved to take their operations into the streets, the city's transportation department will ban cars on a block of Larmier Street and three blocks of Glenarm Street downtown.

Denver's joint information center announced the change Wednesday, saying the move will allow restaurants to serve more customers in the open air, which is safer than bunching diners indoors during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Larimer Street has closed to cars between 14th and 15th streets, otherwise known as Larimer Square. Glenarm will close to cars between 15th and 17th streets near Denver Pavillions.

You power Denverite!
