Winter Storm Response Efforts Continue

​Crews continue to respond to the large amount of fallen trees and debris from the weekend winter storm and anticipate that all public streets will be clear for vehicular travel by Tuesday, Feb. 16. The exception may be locations still awaiting power lines to be removed.  A total of 653 downed tree/limb locations have been logged and 476 have been addressed with a "cut and push aside" response at a minimum.

There are about 40 traffic signals still without power across Salem.  Please continue to use caution on Salem roads.
