East Salem Avenue Closure Could Affect College Traffic

Beginning Tuesday, September 6th, a section of East Salem Avenue between the Academy entrance and the sports fields will be closed for 45 days for the construction of a roundabout at Salem Avenue and City Yard Drive. The new roundabout will serve as a component of the ongoing Salem Creek Connector Project in the area.

From the North:

While there may be some delays due to the construction, generally Salem Avenue will be open from the Academy dining entrance to Rams for local traffic, but the road will closed to any through traffic at Rams Drive.

From the South:

Salem Avenue will be closed just north of our Salem Avenue entrance. 

Traffic needing to access the Salem Avenue entrance across from the Credit Union will need to enter from the south roundabout area. This includes all athletic event parking for the Academy and the College. 

In preparation for the closure Salem Academy and College is working with Old Salem and Home Moravian Church to place a banner at the intersection of Rams and Salem Avenue to direct College traffic, and Academy and College athletic traffic to the right and to follow the detour.
