Updates on the #SalemMA Canal Street Roadway Improvement Project:

This week you can expect to see contractors working on installing a new curbing on Canal Street between Bertini's and Jefferson Avenue. As we move into the week of April 3rd, contractors plan pour a new sidewalk along this same section and side of Canal Street. Work in this area is expected to continue for at least the next two weeks. In addition to this work, contractors will begin clearing trees from the traffic island in the intersection of Canal Street and Jefferson Avenue in preparation for the remodeling of the intersection.

On the other end of the project route, contractors will continue their work on the existing MBTA retaining wall, and the shared-use path. As you may have noticed, there is an temporary work zone in place along the southbound lane of Canal Street--between Domino's and Roslyn Street. We ask that drivers continue to use caution when traveling in the area. Please also be aware of the parking restrictions along the southbound lane of Canal Street between Domino's and Roslyn Street.

As a reminder, all Canal Street businesses are open during this roadway improvement project. Please support our local businesses!

Updates from the Salem Cable Project:

Contractors are making good progress at the substation. This week they began preliminary work on installing the new perimeter fence along the backend of the substation. They also completed backfilling a small section near the new retaining wall abutting Cedar Street.

For the next two to three weeks, contractors will be undertaking a number of activities to finalize the upgrades to the substation. These activities will likely include the installation of a new gate entrance on to Canal Street, slope work along the eastern end of the property, and landscaping. As long as the weather cooperates and no unforeseen issues arise, we expect to have the work at the substation finalized in May.

We will continue to keep you updated on our progress as work resumes at the substation. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the upcoming 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
