he northwest corner of Liberty and Court streets NE in Salem on Aug. 12.

Two lanes of Court Street in downtown Salem will close starting Thursday ahead of its transformation from a one-way to a two-way street.

After construction is completed in the next few weeks, Court Street will run east and west from Commercial Street to High Street.

City officials said the change will address mobility and usability issues in the city’s core and come as part of the Central Salem Mobility Study recommendations. The study found that the change would increase multimodal transportation opportunities while still preserving access to downtown parking.

The switch is also expected to increase traffic circulation, access and improve safety.
