On May 27, 2015, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board unanimously approved Preferred Alternative 1, Option 2, concurring with the Placer County Board of Supervisors and the TTD Board of Directors positive votes.

The TTD has been the lead agency for the project for over six years and will be through the project's completion. Central Federal Lands has assumed the role as lead agency for construction and design of the project and on October 3, 2016 awarded the construction contract to Martin Brothers Construction.

Design images below reflect input from Tahoe City business and property owners, stakeholders, various agencies and residents.

Gateway Features

Members of the community and business/property owners and managers have expressed their desire for gateway features in two of the roundabouts. (not the "wye" roundabout). The gateway feature shown below has been approved. The design was developed using guidelines from the North Lake Tahoe Community Wayfinding Signage Design Standards Manual.


Goals

Project goals include:

  • Improving pedestrian and cyclists’ safety
  • Reducing traffic congestion to improve transit travel times and user experiences
  • Providing two safety routes from the west shore
  • Making the “wye” area more inviting for shopping and dining
  • Adding complete street enhancements to the portion of “old 89/West Lake Blvd. that will become a local road
  • Encouraging economic development and revitalizing the community
  • Rebuilding 87 year-old Fanny Bridge with sidewalks on both sides
  • Improving reliability and connectivity with the new transit center
  • Lessening emissions by a reduction in vehicles idling in traffic and sediment run-off from graded storm water treatment
