One-way traffic control planned in Tahoe City for utility works
TAHOE CITY – Caltrans is alerting motorists of scheduled overnight utility works on State Route 28 in Tahoe City, requiring one-way traffic control next week.
Caltrans will dig holes to locate underground utilities along the shoulders of the highway prior to future upgrades to the SR-28. Utility works are scheduled nightly Monday July 26 through Friday July 30 between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM One mile section of SR-28, SR-89 South / SR-89 West separations Shore to Tahoe State Recreation Area. The campground will be under one-way traffic control during construction periods.
Work is taking place ahead of a $ 24.2 million SR-28 rehabilitation project that will improve the currently poor pavement and drainage systems between the separation of State Route 89 and the California-Nevada border. The project will also modernize pedestrian facilities to comply with current standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The project is funded by Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Liability Act 2017. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2023.
SB 1 provides $ 5 billion in transportation funding each year, split between state and local agencies. Road projects progress faster through construction phases depending on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects partially funded by SB 1. For more information on other transport projects funded by SB 1, visit http://www.rebuildingca.ca.gov.
Caltrans reminds motorists to “Be vigilant in work areas” and to slow down in construction areas for the safety of travelers and crews making these improvements. The department posts construction updates on Twitter @ CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
