    The iconic thoroughfare in the state of Florida will be closed to vehicles so that more space is available for outdoor seating at cafes and restaurants.

    Sputnik presents its live broadcast from Ocean Drive in Miami Beach where restaurants are expected to reopen on Wednesday following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

    No vehicles will be allowed in the street in order to have more seating space outside the restaurants which have to meet certain regulations regarding occupancy and social distancing amid continuing coronavirus outbreak.
