SALEM OR – Marion County has contracted Carter & Company to begin construction on 45th Avenue beginning January 13, 2020. The project will be constructed in several stages and is estimated to be completed in 2021.
The project will widen the road to accommodate bike lanes, add a turn lane at Fire Protection Way, construct missing sidewalk sections and ramps, and upgrade the stormwater system. Once construction is complete, the road will receive an asphalt overlay from Ward Drive to Silverton Road.
The road will remain open with flaggers directing traffic through the work area. Motorists should expect short delays and are advised to use alternate routes. When traveling through the work area, please remain alert, follow flagger instructions and be considerate of pedestrians, bicyclists, and construction workers.
