New pedestrian-friendly spaces are opening in the ByWard Market.

Wiliam Street is the home to one of two pilot projects this summer that attempts to expand spaces for pedestrian use.

The project was inspired by ideas coming out of the ByWard Market Public Realm Study.

The street will be closed to vehicles until the fall, and will allow pedestrians a place to sit, stay and relax in the new William Street Pedestrian Plaza.
