SR28 National Scenic Byway

The US Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, has prepared the draft Environmental Assessment document.  They will accept comments through August 11, 2019.  To view the document and submit comments, please go to USFS link.  Further design of the project is expected to begin late 2019 and be completed at the end of 2020 or early 2021.  Funding for the project will be primarily through discretionary sources.

Location

From the California-Nevada stateline at Crystal Bay, the Scenic Byway continues through Incline Village to US 50 at Spooner Summit.

The two-lane road south of Incline is the only Corridor access for over one million recreating visitors and 2.6 million vehicles per year.

To address safety, traffic and environmental impacts, the TTD is collaborating with 12 area agencies on Corridor Management.

Goals

  • Integrating transportation choices like transit and walking/biking trails will reduce traffic, enhancing the visitor experience.
  • Adding park-n-ride lots and paved spaces will make pedestrians safer. They’ll avoid walking in traffic after shoulder parking.
  • Transportation solutions like the East Shore Express will help protect the lake by reducing car use, erosion and fine sediment run-off.
