Enhances pedestrian safety

On Jan. 23, Lewiston Tribune published an article headlined "State may come to Moscow's rescue," followed by the subhead " 'Surplus eliminator' budget program could help with Third Street bridge project"

This incorrectly makes it sound as though state dollars will be forthcoming to help with Moscow's $580,000 budget to build a vehicle bridge on Third Street over Paradise Creek.

Actually, the $250,000 - if it is received - is not for the bridge program at all, but for safety issues needed to be addressed, whether or not the bridge is built.

The sidewalks and crosswalks projected are for pedestrian safety, not for the bridge. These safety considerations were added when citizens complained about plans that will increase traffic without considering safety issues.

Many citizens are pleased to see that the state of Idaho agrees as to the importance of safe travel and preservation of the integrity of historic East Third Street.

Congratulations are due to the Moscow grant manager, Alisa Anderson, and to the Traffic Calming Subcommittee of the Moscow Transportation Commission, which worked for more than 16 hours in December and January to help develop a plan to increase safety on Third Street.
