Tribune: U of I Plans 'Corridor' to Moscow's Downtown

Posted By on Mon, Aug 26, 2013 at 9:35 AM

As the University of Idaho launches another school year, university officials have their sights set on a decade from now when they hope to have a new corridor linking their campus to Moscow's downtown.

This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that U of I officials "took steps this summer to initiate the process," including garnering the approval from the State Board of Education to purchase more than four acres of old railroad property for $1.85 million. Eventually, the university will demolish old grain elevators on the property, clearing the way to link College Street to South Mountain Street. The Tribune reports that the acquisition was the third of its kind for the U of I since 2004.

Some of the ideas for the property include possible transitional housing, medical building, office space, entertainment, or "companies that might want to provide internships to U of I students," according to the Tribune.
