The Salem River Crossing project is working toward finding a solution that will reduce traffic congestion for all users (buses, cars, trucks, bikes) on the two bridges that cross the Willamette River and the connecting roads in downtown and West Salem.
The Draft EIS assessed the impacts of 8 alternatives plus a no-build alternative, as well as developing visualizations of what each alternative would look like. The preferred alternative was selected for recommendation by the Oversight Team in February 2013. The Final EIS will analyze the preferred alternative (all local jurisdictions must reach consensus) and will respond to public and local agencies/organizations comments from the Draft EIS.
