Congestion Relief Task Force

A Technical Review of Transportation Infrastructure Options

With traffic levels hampering downtown circulation and causing long delays in west Salem, residents are asking for transportation infrastructure improvements.

Composed of the Mayor and three City Councilors, the Congestion Relief Task Force will investigate potential ways for the City to relieve traffic congestion in the Salem core and advise the City Council on policies and actions to improve traffic flow in the downtown area. The Congestion Relief Task Force completed a technical review of transportation infrastructure options for these areas. The Task Force conclusions and recommendations are documented in a summary and a final report.

The Congestion Relief Task Force Action Plan was presented to City Council on April 22, 2019.
