The City of Salem's sidewalk contractor plans to start sidewalk repairs around the Church St parking lot next week on or around May 23, 2022.
The sidewalk work should be completed, weather permitting, within 4 weeks of starting. As part of the work, contractor will be installing a raised crosswalk with ADA compliant tactile pads across Federal Street at the Salem Green walkway.
Work will start on the Federal Street side. Work on the Church Street side of the lot will not begin until after the ongoing improvement project inside the Museum Place Garage is complete, in order to minimize additional parking impacts.
Temporary "No parking" signs will be posted to roughly seven metered spaces in front of 10 Federal Street to allow traffic through during work. When raised crosswalk work starts, the Salem Green walkway will have temporary closures where pedestrians will be detoured to either Washington Street or towards St. Peters Street.
