Salem Downtown Street Resurfacing Project

Project Name: Salem Downtown Street Resurfacing Project
Owner: City of Salem
Location: Salem, Oregon

trans2salemProject Description: Westech performed design services including handicap ramp evaluation as well as the final design and contract documents for approximately 11 blocks of roadway improvements in downtown Salem including 26 new curb extensions at the intersections. The curb extensions were designed to narrow the crosswalks and make the downtown area more pedestrian friendly. The curb extensions included sidewalk widening and streetscaping as well as ADA ramp upgrades at various street corners along Liberty Street and High Street in the downtown commercial core of Salem. Westech and City personnel met with all business owners in the project area to solicit input and review the design details. ADA ramp evaluation complied with the United States Dept. of Justice’s ADA Best Practices Tool Kit. 1”=5’ scale drawings were produced for each curb return which addressed existing facility demolition, grading, storm drainage, light pole replacement, tree well installation, on-street ADA parking, conduit street crossings for future downtown lighting circuit, etc. Westech also prepared the design of 2,900 lineal feet of 24-inch and 2,000 lineal feet of 12-inch water line replacement improvements. Eighty traffic control and detour drawings were prepared by Westech to address construction impacts in the downtown business area. Westech coordinated the design with ODOT for facilities located within the Highway 22 right of way and also coordinated traffic control plans with similar plans for an adjacent ODOT paving project.
