Elkridge Drive - Salem Canal Road Closure
Salem City originally approved the Salem Park Subdivision (400 Units) in approximately 2008. The developer has been working primarily on the east side of the project. About 12 months ago work began on the west side of the project adjacent to Arrowhead Trail and on Arrowhead Trail. When the final engineering design was completed along with the soils engineering for the road, it required that the road be completely reconstructed and raised approximately 18 to 20 inches. At the same time the water, sewer, pressurized irrigation, and storm drain utilities needed to be installed. The utility work is nearly complete and the road reconstruction is beginning. We anticipate this road to be reopened before winter, however the weather may impact this schedule.
As you are most likely aware we had an earthquake this morning centered in the Salt Lake Valley. Salem City immediately activated our emergency management plan. The city has checked the infrastructure (utilities) within the city and found they are all functional with no damage. Furthermore, we have accessed the community and have had no reported injuries or damage. The seismologist at U of U are 95% confident that this 5.7 was the main earthquake. Citizens should expect and be prepared for 100’s to 1000’s of smaller aftershocks in the coming days and months.
The City appreciates the cooperation of all citizens in times of emergencies. Please be assured that Salem City is doing everything we can to care for you and your families in these challenging times.
