Redwood City officials are weighing the possibility of closing some neighborhood streets to cars to make it easier for pedestrians to maintain social distancing.
Palo Alto City Council decided on Monday to look into the same idea, following Oakland’s lead, which barred cars on 74 miles of neighborhood streets last week.
At Redwood City’s council meeting on Monday (April 13), Councilwoman Giselle Hale said that she has been getting questions from residents who are having trouble social distancing on narrow sidewalks.
Hale said that some people pushing strollers will walk in the street in order to maintain six-feet of distance with other pedestrians.
Redwood City Manager Melissa Steveson-Diaz said that her employees began looking into the prospect last week.
