Niagara-on-the-Lake is moving forward with a trial of closing down Queen Street to cars during the pandemic.

Queen Street will be closed down to vehicles to allow for pedestrians this Wednesday on Canada Day, and every Saturday and Sunday from Saturday, July 3rd-Sunday, July 19, 2020.

The street is closed off east of the Old Town Post Office to King Street from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Neither the Old Town Post Office nor the Hendriks Valu Mart will be included in the street closure to vehicular traffic. 

Parking at both establishments will remain for patrons only.

Town Staff will provide a report to Council reviewing the success of the trial closure and will make a recommendation as to whether the weekend and statutory holiday closure of Queen Street should be extended for the rest of July, into August and beyond.
