  • (Reopening RI Plan – Phase 1) Restaurant Outdoor Dining Sidewalk Seating & Roadway Parking Permit Application

    Reopening RI - Phase 1 guidelines for Restaurants allows restaurants to begin limited outdoor dining, subject to applicable municipal approval(s). All indoor dining areas and seating must remain closed to customers.
    In conjunction with these guidelines, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has established a process by which restaurants may apply for and obtain a permit to: 1) use a “sidewalk” (the area outside the paved portion of the state roadway right-of-way designated for vehicular traffic and on-street parking) along a state highway for outdoor dining/seating, and 2) allow parking along a state road  in areas where it would normally not be permitted.  Only restaurants that utilize their on-premises parking lots for outdoor seating may apply for the parking modification. Municipal Police Chief or Chief Public Safety Official concurrence is required.
