Hale Street Closed to Vehicle Traffic as Outdoor Dining Tents Return

Downtown Tents

Starting today, Hale Street will be closed to vehicle traffic between Front Street and Wesley Street through Tuesday, Sept. 7. The Downtown Wheaton Association will once again provide large outdoor dining tents for shared use by downtown restaurants as a way to seat additional patrons safely.  

Sidewalks will remain open for pedestrian access to all businesses. Visit the Downtown Wheaton Association’s website and follow them on social media for more information about participating restaurants, live entertainment and more.  

The City encourages residents and visitors to continue to follow safe social distancing practices and follow all state requirements regarding face coverings in public.
