Construction Updates


Latah County Repair, Repave and Repaint

July 17 to Sept. 25

The first phase of an ongoing Latah County road project came to a close this week. The five-phase project that began in mid-July targets Moscow city streets and the major frontage roads surrounding the UI Moscow campus. The tentative completion date for the construction is Sept. 25. The first phase of the project was located on State Highway 8, starting at the Washington/Idaho State Line and stretching to Washington Street in Moscow. Phase two of construction began yesterday on the US Highway 95 South Couplet and is scheduled to be completed on Friday, Aug. 25. Vehicle access to Taylor and Sweet Avenues will be affected. Follow detour signs and use caution. Expect traffic back-ups this weekend on the city of Moscow streets entering the university, especially Highway 95 to the Sweet Avenue entrance.

Administration Building Repairs

May 31 to Nov. 15

This summer, UI Facilities partnered with the Idaho Division of Public Works and began a project to renovate the interior and exterior Administration Building. The north and east building entrances have been closed since the project began. However, this week, the contractor will install a temporary building access way over the north entrance stairs to allow for the use of the north door while construction continues. The north entrance repairs are scheduled to be completed Sept. 25. The buidling’s front foyer has been closed all summer, and will remain closed for the duration of the project, which is expected to be completed in mid-Nov. Please be aware of work crews and ladders when passing through the area. Pedestrian access in front of the Admin Building will be maintained.

Construction Work Parking Impacts

(Lots 23, 41, 42 and 62)

Red Lot 41 (east of the Lionel Hampton Music Building) will partially re-open for the semester. Parking and Transportation Services plans to keep about two-thirds of the parking spaces available in this lot for use until construction resumes in Sept. Construction in Sept. will once again close the lot entirely until completion (tentatively mid-Sept.). Ongoing Administration Building construction will continue to impact parking access in the Gold Lot 40 (West Admin Building Lot) and Gold Lot 42. Repairs are still underway at the Environmental Health and Safety and Agricultural Science Buildings, which impacts parking availability in Lots 23 and 62.

E.J. Iddings Ag Science Classroom 106

May 15 to Oct. 1

As part of the Agricultural Science Building upgrades that began in mid-May, the east entrance classroom 106 will be closed for the duration of the project. UI Facilities is working with Disability Support Services and the Registrar’s Office to create an ADA-compliant temporary access to this classroom.

Food Science Building

Aug. 1 to Jan.15

Starting on July 25, Facilities moved building occupants to other campus locations for the duration of the Food Science Building project. This month, the contractor will be on site to start the project work, which consists of updating interior areas to meet building codes and ADA Standards, among other updates.

UI Swim Center Closure

May 15 to Sept. 11

The UI Swim Center Pool Facilities continue to be closed for gutter and tile repair work. There are no restrictions to Lot 39 at PEB/Tennis Courts. However, a few parking stalls will be reserved for the pool contractors and these restricted areas will be clearly marked.
