Several ByWard Market streets will close as of July 4 to help restaurants on them expand their patios, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson tweeted Wednesday.

Clarence Street will close between William and Dalhousie streets, Watson said. In addition, the northern side of York Street will be closed between Market Square and Sussex Drive, while some of the on-street parking near the Ottawa sign on York Street will be converted to patio space. The street closures will remain in force until the end of patio season, Watson tweeted.
