Donation to Save old Freight Depot; Collision on 23rd

Remember the old freight depot at the train station?

Old Freight Depot: University of Oregon
Though it's paywalled, the Oregon Daily Journal of Commerce is reporting a deal that might save it!
According to the DJC,
One man anonymously donated $100,000 to aid restoration of an aging Salem train depot that once inspired his wife. When restored, the building will be known as 'Dixie's Depot.'
More details to come on this multi-modal hub. Hopefully bikes will be involved!

Update - Forgot about the passenger rail meeting! For more see the project site.

Collision at 23rd

This is a bad place, and it wouldn't surprise me that someone bicycling the wrong way in the bike lane is involved. Hopefully, they're ok.
