| Salem Police Dept.- Update: UPDATE 06-26-15/2:50 PM
Most of the signals that were affected by the downed power lines are now temporarily operating on City of Salem Public Works generators.
17th St NE remains closed between Center St and B St NE as power crews work to repair the lines. It is anticipated that this could take 3-4 hours.
PGE is enroute to address the issue, and they estimate that these power outages may last as long as four hours.
Traffic signals are out at multiple locations along Center St NE and State St ranging from the downtown area to as far east as the 2500 block of both streets due to downed power lines. Salem Police and Public Works are directing traffic at as many intersections as possible. If possible, motorists are asked to avoid the area until the issue gets resolved. When encountering a traffic signal that is not operational, motorists should treat that intersection as a four-way stop.|
