DCR announced it's shutting parts of Day Boulevard in South Boston, Francis Parkman Drive in Jamaica Plain and Greenough Boulevard at dusk today to make the asphalt available to pedestrians, bicyclists and scooter riders who want some fresh air while keeping six feet away from everybody else.
The roads will be shut to cars until at least Monday, but DCR says it will then take a look at keeping them car free even longer during the current Covid-19 emergency.
Day Boulevard will be shut between Farragut Road and Shore Drive; Parkman Drive between Perkins Street and the Arborway; and Greenough Boulevard between Arsenal and North Beacon streets.
DCR also announced it will be reducing parking spaces at many state parks starting on Saturday to try to decrease the number of people who can ramble around them at one time.
