February 21, 2020 (Moscow, Idaho) --
Utility Relocation work on "A" Street between Cherry Street and Peterson Drive scheduled to begin on Monday, Feb. 24, 2020.
The first phase of the "A" Street Reconstruction Project will begin on Feb. 24, and will consist of site preparation for the relocation of above-ground utilities. This initial phase will primarily involve the removal of several trees within the project area to make room for the relocation of overhead utilities within the corridor. Once tree removal is completed, Avista and other utility operators will begin the relocation of utility poles and overhead cables to make way for the roadway project. During this time, travel on "A" Street will be reduced to a single lane and, at times, closed to through traffic.
The second phase, scheduled to begin on May 18, will include the total reconstruction of "A" Street between Peterson Drive and Home Street, including the complete reconstruction of the roadway, retaining walls, sidewalks, and replacement of underground utilities. It will also include the reconstruction of Line Street from "A" Street to the Pullman Highway and Circle Drive between "A" Street and C Street. Line Street will be updated to have a free right turn onto "A" Street, and Circle Drive at "A" Street will be converted into a cul-de-sac, allowing "A" Street to be reconstructed as a through street with no stops. During this time, "A" Street and Line Street will be closed to through traffic for the duration of the project, which is anticipated to be completed by late fall.
