More Good News: More Stimulus Funds

Today the Salem Keizer Area Transportation Study Policy Committee (SKATS-PC) voted to allocate $50,000 for preliminary engineering of a bike/ped path from the west end of the Union St. Railroad Bridge to Glen Creek Road. This allocation will not fund construction, however - just the preliminary engineering and planning phase.

Nevertheless, stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 are making it possible to accelerate the completion of the bridge by eliminating long gaps between staggered phases.
