Save the Dates - Sundays, 9/29 and 10/6

Coming to Market Square this Fall


The City will run an Open Streets program for two consecutive Sunday afternoons in the Fall, September 29th and October 6th, from Noon to 5 p.m. These dates are intended to target an off-peak weekend day, when traffic volumes are lower and demand for parking is less.  In addition, these Sundays appear to have no obvious conflicts with other scheduled events on the City’s Community Calendar. Streets to be limited to non-vehicular traffic include:

  • Daniel St. from Penhallow to Market Square, Market St. from Bow to Market Square, Congress St. from Market Square to High St., and Pleasant St. from Porter St. to Market Square. 
  • Congress St. will be converted to accept two-way traffic from Fleet St. to High St., and both High St. and Ladd St. will also be two-way.  The portion of Porter from Pleasant St. to Church St. will reverse in direction.  No changes to Bow are recommended.
