SALEM- RECONSTRUCTION ON CANAL STREET, FROM WASHINGTON STREET & MILL STREET TO LORING AVENUE & JEFFERSON AVENUE
The improvements include reconstruction of the roadway pavement, curbing, and sidewalks. Wheelchair ramps and appropriate pedestrian crossings will be added to improve pedestrian safety. Additional improvements such as trees and ornamental lighting, and curb extensions will be incorporated. Pavement markings will be provided to define the parking areas to remain and provide defined shoulder areas for use by bicycles. Drainage improvements will be made, the roadway crown will be adjusted to provide a consistent cross slope, and repair of settled locations will be done. Access issues with area business will be more clearly defined to improve safety for vehicles entering and exiting local businesses. Traffic signals at Mill and Washington and at Loring and Jefferson will be updated.
