BOSTON — Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said the city is considering possible changes to roads and sidewalks to facilitate social distancing when people start going back to work.


Possibilities include limiting some streets to local traffic, creating temporary bike lanes, adding more bus lanes or stops and converting curbside parking spaces into additional sidewalk space.

“If we do something like that, we’re doing it either to move transportation, move traffic along when people to come back to work and/or allow our small businesses to get some opportunities to get to expand outside their four corners,” he said during his Wednesday update outside City Hall.

Walsh also urged caution and patience as the expected start of a gradual economic reopening approaches.
