Broad Street Closure in Downtown Bangor to Begin Tonight, June 12th
BANGOR, MAINE—Beginning Friday, June 12, 2020, the City of Bangor will temporarily close Broad Street in Downtown Bangor to vehicle traffic.

Businesses will be able to utilize the area as a pedestrian mall, as well as for expanded outdoor restaurant service to improve social distancing capabilities.
