|SKATS/SRC Open House Announcement|
(with N3B, of course!)
We will assemble on the sidewalk in front of the Court Street entrance to Courthouse Square beginning at 4 pm. We will have remarks from NO 3rd Bridge activists beginning at 4:30. Then at 5 we will attend the Open House at Courthouse Square en masse. Please come and show your support for NO 3rd Bridge.In addition to the festivities and "information" about the Salem Alternative and progress on the Environmental Impact Statement, there will also be information about the 2015-2020 Transportation Improvement Program.
|Brochure detail with map and partial project list|
While the bridge deserves nearly endless criticism, there are other good and necessary and even wonderful things in the project list - like the intersection work for Union and Commercial, which will complete a critical gap in the eastside approach to the Union Street Railroad Bridge and a future Union Street bikeway. (So be open to dual perspectives! It's necessary to be cranky and cheerful in rapid succession.)
|East/right side of Union not included in project|
(Also in history, in a window display on Court Street, fronting the Senator Hearing Room, I think, there's a nice historical piece on the Derby Building and its growth into the Senator Hotel - which was demolished for Courthouse Square. There are pictures from each decade or so showing the storefronts and streets.)
