Waltham will close Moody Street once again to traffic to allow outdoor dining amid the second year of the pandemic. The closure will begin May 1 and last until the end of October.
During the height of the pandemic, Waltham was one of the first cities in the state to completely close a roadway to allow restaurants more space for outdoor dining. It was held up as an example by communities across the commonwealth as an example.
But as the city set to considering whether and when to close the main thoroughfare to cars once again to accommodate outdoor dining in an effort to support local dining, some business owners that share the road with the restaurants pushed back. They worried with no street parking, they'd lose business.
After months of discussion, Waltham Traffic Commission voted to repeat last year’s shutdown of Moody Street from High to Pine Streets from May 1 to October 31.
