South Salem Street Improvements Free to TaxpayersSalem-News.com
Developer-funded street projects account for approximately 65 percent of street construction in Salem.
(SALEM) - Developers of a number of South Salem subdivisions will be providing street improvements this fall that will ultimately improve traffic flow and safety at no cost to taxpayers.
These South Salem projects are a few examples of street improvements that the City's development regulations require to be constructed and funded by developers.
Southern Heights Subdivision and Wallace Ridge Estates are two subdivision projects that will extend Mildred Lane SE from Lone Oak Road SE to Liberty Road S. Wallace Ridge Estates will also be constructing a left-turn lane from southbound Liberty Road S to eastbound Mildred Lane SE. The extension of Mildred Lane SE will improve east-west traffic flow in South Salem and will reduce traffic impacts on existing local streets, particularly Holder Lane SE.
Waln Creek West Subdivision will widen and improve the intersection of Holder Lane SE and Liberty Road S. This improvement will include sidewalks and street lights, which will benefit vehicular and pedestrian traffic. These traffic safety improvements will benefit Crossler Middle School students who walk to school along Holder Lane SE, which is currently a narrow street without sidewalks.
Bella Cresta Subdivision will construct a left-turn lane from southbound Skyline Road S to eastbound Davis Road S. The subdivision developer will also widen the street and lower the hill on Davis Road S to increase traffic safety and visibility. Davis Road S is anticipated to be closed at Skyline Road S for approximately six weeks.
As with most projects, local traffic can expect delays during construction. Recognizing that these developer-funded projects will result in improved traffic and improved safety, we ask for motorists' patience during the construction period.
