Williamstown to temporarily close Spring Street to vehicles the next two Saturday evenings to allow outdoor dining.
The initiative to help downtown restaurants that do not otherwise have outdoor space to set up tables was first tried on June 27.
Although the weather did not entirely cooperate that night, people who did have a chance to take advantage of the opportunity reacted positively on social media.
Organizers also got positive reactions, according to Jane Patton, the chair of the town's Select Board and vice president of the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce.
Spring Street will be closed to cars for driving and parking on July 11 and 18 from 4 to 10 p.m. This will allow businesses one hour for setup from 4 to 5 p.m. and breakdown from 9 to 10 p.m.
