Visitors to downtown Anchorage now have a little more space to spread out. Open Streets ANC – a partnership between the Municipality of Anchorage and the Anchorage Downtown Partnership – has closed several local streets to vehicle traffic, giving pedestrians freedom to walk, shop, and socialize while practicing physical distancing and protecting public health.
Newly opened streets include G Street between 3rd and 4th Avenue, and F Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. Participating businesses include Cajun Corner, Crush, Diamond Parking, Easy Park, Flattop Pizza & Pool, Humpy’s Great Alaskan Alehouse, Lumen Design LLC., Sevigny Studio, SubZero, SteamDot Cafe, Trapper Jacks, Urban Greens, and Williwaw Social. The initiative runs through Monday, Aug. 31. Contact the Anchorage Downtown Partnership for more information.
