Pedestrian-only road wins committee backing

William Street in the ByWard Market took another step toward becoming a pedestrian-only road Wednesday.

The city’s transportation committee unanimously approved creating a public space at the southern part of William Street where it intersects with York Street.

Closing William Street in that location would also require that the direction of the street be reversed to allow vehicles to exit from a garage to Clarence Street.

If approved by council next week, the change would add $275,000 to the city’s 2010 capital budget.
