I think the Wander Walks Salem map has been out for a month or so. It's available at the service counter in the transit mall downtown.
But it's a little odd perhaps. Have you seen it?

I myself and those I know who like to walk often choose routes to avoid the exhaust and traffic.
|Wander Walks Detail - lots of arterial walking|
For the urban jungle enthusiast, this walk guides residents and visitors alike through the commercial heart of Salem Shopping. With boutiques, food and coffee,as well as unique and charming local shops...You mean the mall?
If it is supposed to represent especially interesting or pleasant walks in Salem, I think the map misses the mark.
There's too much State highway and not enough wander.
It seems like this was a bit of a missed opportunity.
Did anyone do Bridge Pedal on Sunday or walk across the new bridge during the open house period?
Now that's a "signature" bridge! And it's not built for cars. (Lots more imagery posted to twitter and elsewhere.)Public treated to an open house at #TilikumCrossing during annual #BridgePedal. http://t.co/UmgW4FRrf5 pic.twitter.com/XrFjrNeXgR— The Oregonian (@Oregonian) August 10, 2015
You already know we have a couple of smaller bridges in progress. There's nothing especially fascinating about them at the moment, but it's always nice to see the progress.

A Few Stray Additions...
Salem brewers, you did "angry owl" - let's do a Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge beer next year!
And here's some important criticism of the bridge.Meet the official beer of Portland's newest bridge, BridgePort Brewing's Tilikum Orange Line IPA. #TilikumWhiteIPA pic.twitter.com/jncoezVvTW— BridgePortBrew (@bridgeportbrew) August 11, 2015
@leepyne It's an awesome bridge & all, but the sausage was pretty ugly & had many, many costs.— Michael Andersen (@andersem) August 12, 2015
@leepyne 1) 50% funding from fed transit admin 2) city share borrowed against fund for crumbling roads despite firestorm of protest...— Michael Andersen (@andersem) August 12, 2015
@leepyne ...3) transit agency share borrowed against future ops funding, contributing to screwing union retirees 4) state share from lotto— Michael Andersen (@andersem) August 12, 2015
