OR 221: Wallace Road at Glen Creek Road Intersection
Overview
The City of Salem and ODOT are working together to improve traffic conditions at the intersection of Wallace Road and Glen Creek Road in West Salem. Wallace Road is also the OR 221 (Salem-Dayton Highway) under the jurisdiction of ODOT. Glen Creek Road is a City of Salem street.
 
The project will widen the roadways to create a Wallace Road northbound dual left turn lanes to westbound Glen Creek and an east bound dual right turn lanes from eastbound Glen Creek Road to southbound Wallace Road. Work will also be done on the other two intersection approaches to transition into the widening for dual left turn lanes. A new traffic signal will be installed as well.
 
Funding
In November 2008, voters approved a $99.8 million dollar general obligation bond measure to improve Salem’s streets and bridges.
 
The total project cost is approximately $11 million dollars, comprising $3.4 million in federal/state funds and $8.5 million in city bond funding from the November 2008, voter approved, $99.8 million dollar general obligation bond measure to improve Salem’s streets and bridges.
