Downtown Streetscape Design Study


The City of Moscow is considering future reinvestment in the utilities, paving, and streetscape of downtown. Potential physical renovations of the infrastructure will improve community health and present an opportunity to fine-tune the community spaces to further enhance the vitality of our community’s beloved downtown core.

Welch-Comer Engineers has been hired by the City of Moscow to conduct a Streetscape Study and provide concept design and cost estimating for improvements identified by the community. The study and concept design work occurred in the summer and fall of 2022. The Moscow City Council will make a final determination of potential projects in early 2023. Depending on funding, construction of initial phases could begin later in 2023.

Moscow Downtown Streetscape Study Planning Process

The Moscow Downtown Streetscape Study sought community input to identify improvements that could help reinforce downtown Moscow’s sense of place, further strengthen downtown Moscow’s vitality, and improve downtown’s functionality as a community gathering space.

The City of Moscow appointed a Steering Committee composed of stakeholders with a business, property, or community interest in downtown Moscow to guide Welch-Comer Engineers in the concept design phase.
