A public hearing was held on the project in October 2014.
This purpose of this project was to improve the 0.5-mile section of East Main Street in Salem between Thompson Memorial Drive (Route 311) and Brand Avenue by adding bike lanes, curbing, lighting, sidewalks and a new signal at Lynchburg Turnpike.
The project included the addition of two-way left turn lanes, a dedicated right turn lane from East Main Street onto Thompson Memorial Drive and a dedicated right turn lane from Lynchburg Turnpike onto East Main Street.
The purpose of the project was to improve traffic flow, access and safety for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. The improvements to this road will provide better access for people between downtown Salem and the nearby museum, park and recreation facilities.
