First Wednesday Street Closures!

The Statesman reports:
Traffic on two additional downtown blocks will be stopped tonight for First Wednesday back to school events, officials said.
The closures will be:

Commercial Street, from Chemeketa to Court streets, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Court Street, from Front to Commercial streets, from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Chemeketa Parkade will still be available for parking, Salem Public Works officials said.
It's free! That's how Summer in the City should have been.

Go enjoy a fine summer's evening! Cheer on the kids! Drink some beer!


  1. So that's what's going on? Here I thought it was another paving nightmare like the one broadway turned into.

  2. Next summer will be the summer of downtown paving nightmares! Commercial, Church, & High are all scheduled for grinding and tar.

    Didn't see many people out last night...did you?

  3. I didn't actually make it into downtown. We were just getting back from a day at the coast and seeing the street closures we went around. We figured we were avoiding a nightmare, not avoiding a festival :P
