Engineers to begin work on Depot intersection design in Salem
This week, the Board of Selectmen gave its approval for engineers to move forward with traffic improvement plans at the intersection that will include dedicated left-hand turn lanes on Route 28.
Engineers from VHB, the firm that has been working on engineering plans since 2008, presented selectmen with two options for the project. One of those projects included space for future development for a raised median at the intersection, while the other did not include the median.
However, selectmen did allow for additional widening for either a sidewalk or median in the long-term, depending upon the future development of the Depot area.
Selectman Stephen Campbell said the initial estimate for the work is $1.55 million, with the project increasing to as much as $3 million, depending on the amount of property the town may have to take to complete it.
Backus said the project would be funded primarily with state and federal funds.
