South Salem Commuter Rail Stop
The Salem Partnership retained the services of AECOM to determine the feasibility of locating a second commuter rail stop in South Salem. AECOM looked at a number of possible locations for the stop. The preferred location for the stop is situated between Jefferson Avenue and Canal Street, in a vibrant urban center with nearby residential neighborhoods, North Shore Medical Center and Salem State University. The preferred location for the stop minimizes impacts to local abutters. Two neighborhood meetings were held to discuss the project.
