Traffic Signal Interconnect and Fiber
Marion County has received funding to interconnect both County and City signals along segments of the Lancaster Drive, Silverton Road, Cordon Road, Center Street and Court Street corridors within the Salem urban growth boundary. In conjunction with the signal interconnect, the County will be constructing high speed fiber optic connections to several key County facilities for Public Works, Sherriff, Dog Control, Public Health and the County Administration building. This work will improve traffic efficiency along these corridors and will provide high speed data links to County buildings.
The Project will consist of running 96 to 288 fiber optic strand cable overhead, and through existing and new conduit. Signal controllers will be upgraded where necessary, and County facilities occurring on or near the interconnect route will be connected.
Federal Aid Surface Transportation funds along with approximately 10% County and City of Salem matching funds are being utilized to connect the signals and upgrade controllers. County funds are being used to connect County building facilities. The total project cost is estimated to be $1,400,000, which includes engineering, construction, and administration.
