14th STREET AT SHELTON DITCH BRIDGE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

The 14th Street Bridge at Shelton Ditch is an existing 3-span cantilever concrete bridge constructed in 1964.  During the winter of 2012, this bridge experienced significant scour due to creek flooding. The project is being performed to provide permanent scour protection of the bridge approach on both sides. The specific repair will be to install sheet piles at each end of the bridge. Bridge end panels will also be installed to help protect the bridge approach.

The Commercial Street Bridge (at Pringle Creek) Replacement Project (a Keep Salem Moving! Bond Project) includes removing the 84-year-old, 194-foot, 4-span bridge and replacing it with a 180-foot-long, single-span bridge.

MILL CREEK CORPORATE CENTER

The Mill Creek Industrial Park Urban Renewal Area (URA) was created in May 2005 to transform 828 acres of undeveloped property into shovel-ready parcels of industrial land to meet the region's need for industrial land and employment opportunities and the City's interest in additional family-wage jobs and increased property tax revenues. The majority of the property, known as the Mill Creek Corporate Center, is owned by the State of Oregon.

The plan's goals are to stimulate development of a broad mix of compatible employment uses within the URA; promote high-quality development that preserves and protects the URA's natural amenities and environmentally sensitive areas; implement transportation improvements to increase access to the area and mitigate traffic impacts of development; and provide sewer, water, surface water management, and wetlands enhancement infrastructure within the area to facilitate its efficient and timely development.

A series of projects are included in the plan to prepare the URA property for development, including infrastructure investments specific to transportation, sewer, water, stormwater, and wetlands mitigation. Urban Renewal funding for these projects is anticipated by the Intergovernmental Agreement for the Development of the Mill Creek Corporate Center between the State of Oregon, City of Salem, and Urban Renewal Agency of the City of Salem. The City, Agency, and the State of Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS) have made significant progress on infrastructure and wetland construction projects in the Mill Creek URA Plan to the extent that new businesses have acquired property, constructed facilities, and added jobs. Approximately 135 acres are ready for development for prospective companies to immediately construct new facilities. The Urban Development Department works closely with DAS, SEDCOR, Business Oregon, and other partners to fulfill the goals and objectives of the Mill Creek URA by promoting the available properties and responding to formal requests for proposals from interested companies looking for land development opportunities.

MINTO BROWN PARK RESTORATION

The City of Salem partnered with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to protect Willamette River floodplain and restore native habitats on approximately 166 acres of Minto-Brown Island Park. Floodplain Easement closing occurred March 2010, and initial restoration activity began in early April with tree and shrub planting in the Willow Slough area (former pumpkin patch) and Woodland 5, south of the cherry orchard. Throughout summer 2010 work focused on preparation of restoration areas for fall seeding of native grasses and flowering forbs. Tillage and two applications of herbicide were used to eliminate undesirable non-native and invasive plants. Signs are posted notifying park users whenever spraying is conducted. Initial seeding was completed in late fall, with tree and shrub planting December 2010.

At the end of 2012 the site had a healthy establishment of native grass in the wet prairie and upland prairie areas. The Ponderosa pine clusters and the Oregon white oak clusters were doing quite well. Shrub and tree establishment is proceeding well in the mixed woodlands. Songbirds like black capped chickadees, song sparrows, and American goldfinches were frequently being spotted in the spirea stands and willow thickets.

The NRCS contractor conducted regular monitoring and management of the restoration site in 2011 and 2012 and continued through 2013 to ensure plant survival and control of invasive species. The floodplain restoration continues to perform well and appears to be on a strong trajectory to achieving the project goals. In 2014 the responsibility of ongoing maintenance and management of the restoration will be transferred from NRCS to the City of Salem's Parks and Transportation Division of Public Works.
