Kuebler/Commercial Update

COMMERCIAL STREET SE/KUEBLER BOULEVARD SE WIDENING IMPROVEMENTS

 

Downloadable file: Project Map

Striping operations for the Commercial Street SE / Kuebler Boulevard SE widening improvements are scheduled to occur of Friday, October 28, 2016. This work will begin at noon and continue through the remainder of the day. The work is dependent upon dry pavement conditions.

Motorists should use caution as this work will require traffic shifting and lane closures on both Commercial Street SE and Kuebler Boulevard SE. Flaggers will be present to control traffic. This work will create traffic congestion within the area and motorists should expect delays. If possible, we suggest motorists use alternate routes.

This project was made possible due to savings from the Keep Salem Moving! Streets and Bridges Bond, passed by Salem voters in November 2008. This project was added to the bond by then Council President and current SGNA Chair T.J. Sullivan.

Proposed Development for Kuebler & 27th

At our October SGNA Board Meeting, we heard from Alan Sorem of Saalfeld Griggs about a proposed comp zone change regarding the property to the immediate east of 27th and south of Kuebler. All property comes into the city as residential and then gets proposed for changes from there. In the months to follow we will be working with the property owners and their representatives to meet with the surrounding property owners to talk through the proposed change.
