Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway Changes Routing in Salem

The Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway has changed its alignment in Salem and Keizer from one along Rivercrest Drive and Front Street to one using Maple and Winter streets.

New Alignment along Maple/Winter
While the Rivercrest Drive leg is pleasant, the Front Street leg on busy downtown streets was not. This new route will be much quieter - hopefully there will be signage at Union and Winter, and at Chemeketa and Winter to direct folks to the Union Street Railroad Bridge and to downtown.

Maps and signage aren't fully updated, so the best mapping is online here with gps coordinates and elevations.
