The Adams Morgan Partnership Business Improvement District (AMPBID) today announced the long-awaited return of the 18th Street Pedestrian Zone that will occur on multiple Sundays throughout the remainder of the year. This means that no cars will be able to drive along 18th Street NW between Kalorama and Columbia Roads NW on the following dates:
- Sunday, August 21 from 12pm-10pm
- Sunday, September 4 from 12pm-10pm
- Sunday, October 23 from 12pm-10pm
After the Mayor’s June 2020 pilot street closure, the Adams Morgan Partnership BID says it received “overwhelming support” from businesses that it assisted with post-COVID recovery efforts. During its return, people can expect to see barriers in place, bustling streateries, and people moving freely on both the sidewalk and in the street.
Pedestrian zone visitors will also experience pop-up entertainment and fun programming throughout the day for people of all ages.
