Saltzman Road Project

Advisory Committee formed to help decision-makers understand the community's perspectives on one of the two proposed alignment alternatives

The Project
Saltzman Road, between Laidlaw Road and Bayonne Lane, will be widened to three lanes (one travel lane in each direction with a center turn lane) with bike lanes and sidewalks.

Saltzman Road is a two-lane urban collector serving a rapidly-growing community. The road has narrow lanes without adequate bike and pedestrian facilities.

Two proposed alignment alternatives for Saltzman Road are being studied. Other improvements include street lighting, drainage, curbs and gutters.

CPO Leadership Fun

Neighbors working together

CPOs are made up of neighbors working with neighbors to stay informed about local issues, to share ideas and concerns, and to participate in decision making processes whenever possible, with one goal in mind: to help improve the livability of the communities they serve. And they have lots of fun doing it! If you are interested in volunteering in your community, contact us!
