Project Objectives

The primary objective of this project is to develop a streetscape to better accommodate multimodal circulation, improve safety for all modes, encourage a healthy lifestyle and support uses adjacent to the Bikeway.

More specific objectives include the following:

  • Create a safe, comfortable, and convenient corridor design that will prioritize bicycle and pedestrian transportation modes.
  • Provide better bicycle and pedestrian links between downtown Salem and significant destinations such as local commercial areas, employment centers, activity centers, schools, and parks.
  • Use design features which result in motor vehicle volumes and speeds that are conducive to shared-lane bicycle use for the “interested but concerned” riders.
  • Address the potential need for additional right-of-way, identify associated property impacts, and address acquisition and mitigation strategies.
  • Identify options to address stormwater runoff from impervious surface in the right-of-way, considering green street treatments as well as more conventional measures.
  • Identify phasing and potential funding sources for improvements.
  • Involve the public and stakeholders in designing the streetscape with particular outreach to disadvantaged populations.
