The US Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, has prepared the draft Environmental Assessment document. A Finding of No Significant Impact was signed on November 11, 2020. To view the documents, please go to USFS link. Further design of the project is expected to begin late 2019 and the project is to be constructed in phases, pending funding. Funding for the project will be primarily through discretionary sources. For the latest grant application (which was not awarded to TTD), click here.
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.
- 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.
