Paradise Path Underpass & Multimodal Extension

Underpass

This project will  enhance alternative transportation options and increase access and safety for travelers in Moscow. The underpass will include north and south approaches on State Highway 8
at White/Styner Avenue will utilize the existing Paradise Creek Bridge infrastructure and new path improvements to provide connections to Paradise Path with links to the Latah Trail, Moscow Greenway, and sidewalk network at White Avenue connecting to the Heron’s Hideout path section. The project will also include storm sewer pipe relocations, a retaining wall, culvert placement, sidewalk extension, and path safety features including lighting, railings and signage. This project will provide a safer option to crossing State Highway 8 at White/Styner Avenue.  This project consists of the extension of Paradise Path from Styner Ave / Highway 8 to the Latah County Fairgrounds. A new ten (10') foot wide shared-use path will be constructed along the north side of White Avenue along with an underpass at Highway 8 connecting the new pathway extension to the existing Paradise Path. The timeline for this project is late June to late September.  The project was identified in the Moscow Multi-Modal Transportation Plan to provide a safe crossing for multimodal traffic traveling to downtown, the University of Idaho, medical and retails centers from the motor business and residential zones.  

Project Update:

April 6, 2018 (Moscow, Idaho) -- Due to construction of the Styner-White Avenue Underpass/Paradise Path Extension, and the replacement of a failing City water main, White Avenue traffic between State Highway 8 (Troy Highway) and Blaine Street will be temporarily limited to one-way eastbound traffic. This segment of roadway is expected to remain closed to westbound traffic from May 17 to early August. State Highway 8, Blaine Street, Hanson Avenue, and Styner Avenue will remain open to traffic.
 
Access from White Avenue to all local businesses will remain open to eastbound traffic only during the construction.  Citizens are asked to be aware of detours and possible delays near this location.
