Downtown Naperville, Plainfield Post Plans on Outdoor Dining

Downtown Naperville put together this super slick infographic to let us know how each establishment will be accomodating outdoor dining.

Plainfield will be closing down its main downtown thoroughfare, Lockport Street, to allow for al fresco dining. Here are the specifics from the Plainfield Patch:

Some specifics of the proposal were:

  • Lockport Street will be closed from Illinois Street to Des Plaines Street and from Des Plaines Street to Fox River Street.
  • Des Plaines Street and Illinois Street will remain open to allow for access to parking lots and curbside pickups for restaurants that will remain crucial to their operation.
  • Closure of the street will begin approximately 6:30 a.m. to avoid anyone parking in these areas.
  • Table setup time will start approximately 10 a.m. and service to end approximately 8:00 p.m. with street closure ending approximately at 9 p.m.
  • Lockport Street from Fox River to James remaining open to allow for more access to parking and curbside pickup for restaurants.
  • Alcohol will be permitted for consumption for seated guests only.
  • A digital message board will be placed along Route 59 advising Lockport Street is closed.
