Updates from the #SalemMA Canal Street Roadway Improvement Project:
This week you can expect to see continued sidewalk construction on Canal Street between Loring Avenue and Forest Avenue. Additional sidewalk construction will also take place on Canal Street between Ocean Avenue and St. Paul Street.
Contractors also plan to begin work on drainage installations in front of McDonald's (150 Canal Street) and in the lot at 135 Canal Street. As we head into the first week of May expect sidewalk excavation, curb setting and conduit installation to continue as contractors progress between Ocean Avenue and St. Paul Street. Please stay tuned over the coming weeks as more construction schedules become available.

Steady progress continues at the Canal Street Substation as our contractors continue their work to install a new perimeter fence around the substation.
While the fence work is ongoing a number of other activities are expected to take place inside the substation grounds. As we've noted in past newsletters these action items include landscaping design improvements, new lighting installations, and general clean up ahead of the approaching spring planting season.
In terms of a timeline for the remaining work at the substation, we hope to have the majority of the pending work items complete by the end of May.
As always, if you have any questions about any of the ongoing substation work, feel free to be in touch via our toll-free hotline at 844-SALEM-CABLE or through the "Contact Us" feature on our website at salemcableproject.com.
Thanks again for your patience as we wrap up our work at the substation. ...
An interesting perspective of the current status of the Salem Powerplant. This is from the southwest at about 150'. As you can see, most of the turbine and steam generator sections are enclosed and waiting for the louver finish to be installed. Gone are almost all of the cranes. And you might wonder, as we did WHY the stack has a stripe on it. This section of the stack will host some special low powered lighting for changing the personality of the stack. The acoustic walls around the main transformer sections are complete as well. Very good progress.
This notice has been prepared to inform you that the City of Salem is preparing to begin a major roadway resurfacing project on Washington Street between Front Street/Barton Square and Mill Street, on Margin Street, and on the City parking lot in front of #193-211 Washington Street (refer to attached plan of work).
The project will involve grinding the road surface and repaving.
To mitigate traffic impact during this work, the majority of the work will take place at night, between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Washington and Margin Sreets will be closed when work takes place.
In addition, the Riley Plaza parking lot will have limited access when work occurs on Margin Street. The parking lot in front of #193-211 Washington Street will be closed on the evenings when work occurs there.
Weather permitting, the work schedule is as follows:
• Wednesday night, April 26th – Grinding pavement on Margin Street from Mill Street to Norman Street, and on Washington Street (South Bound) from Barton Square to Mill Street
• Thursday night, April 27th – Grinding pavement on Washington Street (North Bound) from Mill Street to Front Street, and the parking lot in front of #193-211 Washington Street
• Sunday night, April 30th – Paving Margin Street from Mill Street to Norman Street, and on Washington Street (South Bound) from Barton Square to Mill Street
• Monday night, May 1st – Paving Washington Street (North Bound) from Mill Street to Front Street, and the parking lot in front of #193-211 Washington Street
During this project, the work area will be an active construction site and you should be careful and drive at a reduced speed accordingly. No parking signs will be posted in advance of construction and no-parking will remain in effect until construction is complete. On the days when work is being conducted, it is important not to have cars parked in the roadway or in the parking lots where posted. Police details will be present to facilitate traffic management around the road closures.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you may incur during this process. The City appreciates your patience and forbearance during this project. ...
