Carnegie residents soon will have an opportunity to see what Main Street looks like without vehicles.
The borough will hold its first Open Streets Carnegie from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 24.
West Main and East Main streets will be closed to vehicular traffic from Jefferson Street to Washington Avenue to allow residents and visitors to participate in health-conscience activities on the road.
“I’m hearing a nice buzz about it,” Mayor Jack Kobistek said. “Every business will participate in some form. People are welcome to bring their bikes, scooters or skateboards, or just walk.”
Kobistek said the event has two main purposes: to encourage people to live an active lifestyle and to highlight the borough’s numerous health and wellness businesses.
