City of Salem – 08/02/21 3:00 PM
Portland & Western Pacific Railroad is scheduled to perform track repairs on Union Street at the entrance to Riverfront Park. The work will impact drivers and park patrons starting August 6 at 7 a.m. to August 10 until noon.
Union Street and the Riverfront Park entrance will be closed between Front Street NE and the alleyway to the west. Vehicles traveling southbound on Front Street should watch for crews working in the area and expect some congestion and/or delays.
Riverfront Park and its attractions including Salem’s Riverfront Carousel, Gilbert Carousel, Gilbert House Children’s Museum, the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge, and the Union Street Railroad Bridge remain open during the road closure and accessible via detour routes. Enter the park using the Division Street NE alleyway west of the Front Street NE bypass and continue south towards Water Street SE.
