SR 28 National Scenic Byway Ideas



Stay informed via email.

Help us protect your Tahoe backyard.
The 10-mile State Route 28 Scenic Byway encompasses one of the longest stretches of undeveloped Lake Tahoe shoreline and already attracts over one million motorists, cyclists and pedestrians per year. (Sand Harbor reported 17% more visitors in 2011.) Concerns about increases in vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian conflicts, emissions from vehicles idling in traffic and erosion due to off-road parking (growing by 116% from 2000 to 2011) have prompted improvement initiatives.

We want your ideas about how to create a sustainable plan for the State Route 28 Corridor for future generations. This is a great opportunity for surrounding community members and Lake Tahoe visitors who frequent the SR28 Corridor from Crystal Bay to Spooner Summit to share their ideas for making it safer, more enjoyable and better for the environment. Feel free to post ideas in the form of text, photos, videos and links. All ideas will be captured in the final report. You will also be qualified to win a $150 Scheels gift card for participating.
