Building Salem: Derby Street Construction Project

July 19, 2020 Published By Julie Arrison-Bishop

Access to our parking lot on Derby Street may be limited over the next few weeks as the city begin construction work on Phase One of the Derby Street Improvement Plan. This project will help to create more accessible sidewalks and pathways for residents and visitors alike. We are excited for the finished product, but realize the inconvenience.

For local parking, we would suggest the following:

South Harbor Garage (7-minute walk; 0.4 miles)
Salem Ferry Landing (5-minute walk; 0.2 miles)

There are meter spots at the upper end of Derby Street near the Salem Maritime National Historic Site and Pickering Wharf. Please do not park in resident-only parking! Our residents have extremely limited space with this project!
