West Salem - Monday
This one is short and a little cryptic, but might be interesting: "West Salem Transportation Plan Update – Salem Public Works Department," as it's listed on the agenda for tomorrow, Monday the 1st.
I suspect this is the West Salem Business District Action Plan for the Second Street undercrossing and the associated projects, but maybe there's some other West Salem Transportation Plan in the works.
Two other items are of interest as well: "Stellers Eagle / Bald Eagle Concern (Hazardous Intersection due to Parked Cars)" and "Student Parking Near West Salem High School."
The West Salem Neighborhood Association meeting is 7pm at Roth’s West, Mezzanine level, at 1130 Wallace Rd NW on Monday, February 1st.
Northeast Neighbors - Tuesday
|The median island prohibits a westbound left turn from 17th|
Kevin Hottmann, City Traffic Engineer – Possibility of Removing the No Left Turn Sign on the Median Island at 17th Street NE and Chemeketa Street NEThis bears watching. Would it entail the removal of the island? If we are serious about making Chemeketa a fully family friendly bicycle boulevard, we should probably be thinking about ways to discourage even more auto traffic on it.
On the surface, this looks like a move in the wrong direction.
