Convoy to travel through area Thursday

SALEM — A historical military vehicle convoy slated to make stops in East Palestine and Columbiana will travel through Washingtonville, Salem and Damascus on its way to Alliance Thursday morning.

The Salem Area Chamber of Commerce is estimating the time of arrival in Salem along State Street at anywhere from 9:45 to 10 a.m. and wanted residents to know so they have an opportunity to see it. The Military Vehicle Preservation Association is traveling across the country to re-enact the original 1919 Army Motor Convoy in celebration of the 100th anniversary.

From Columbiana, the convoy is expected to travel west on state Route 14, through Washingtonville, and then continue into Salem on State Street and move on to Alliance along U.S. Route 62.
