Mountain View Road Improvements
Paradise Creek Bridge to 6th Street
A large percentage of the growth that has occurred in the City of Moscow over the last fifteen years has been on the eastern boundary of the city. Mountain View Road is the only existing north-south arterial in this portion of the community and, as such, carries the majority of the increased traffic. In addition, it serves as a primary access route to Moscow Middle School, McDonald Elementary School, Moscow Charter School, the Eggan Youth Center, and the Hamilton-Lowe Recreation Center. It borders the Latah County Fairgrounds, and is also a farm-to-market road for some Palouse area farmers.
The existing two-lane rural roadway is not adequate for the mix of farm haul, commuter, residential, and bicycle/pedestrian traffic. The City of Moscow has completed similar improvements of the roadway to the north and south of the proposed project. The proposed project will re-construct the road to match those previous improvements, and will provide another segment of safe pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic corridor.
The project is currently being designed by JUB Engineers. Construction is programmed in fiscal year 2019.
The Mountain View Road Project's purpose is to improve traffic flow and safety from Joseph Street through 6th Street.
Potential project features include:
- Widening the existing 24 foot paved, two lane rural road to a 36 foot wide, two lane, urban road
- Bicycle lanes where warranted
- Storm drainage improvements
- Illumination upgrade
- Curbs, gutters, sidewalks and tree lawns
- A roundabout at the intersection of Mountain View Road and 6th Street.
