​Background Information

Salem Heights Avenue S, extends from Liberty Road S to Sunridge Drive S and is a designated collector street. Designed more than 70 years ago, Salem Heights Avenue S does not meet the transportation needs of Salem residents per the Salem Transportation System Plan. Potential improvements include adding sidewalks, bike lanes, curbs, and gutters. The existing road presents many challenges, including particularly steep hills and narrow right-of-way. The goal of the project is to make Salem Height's avenue safer and easier to use for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians within the existing constraints while still maintaining the neighborhood's character.
