Engineers will come up with Harrison Avenue plan

Plans to revamp Harrison Avenue with a sidewalk, bike trail and a landscaping strip are under revision.

JWA Consulting Engineers are working on a plan to bring to business owners in April, said Teri Jamin, public services director for the city of South Lake Tahoe.

“Depending on how much area we have, we’re looking at a sidewalk, travel lane, parking, bike trail and creating a buffer along the street edge,” she said. “Ideally the buffer would be a landscaped strip but there might only be room for a wall or a narrow strip of trees.”

Jamin said the plan must be approved by business owners because it encroaches on private property in portions of the Harrison Avenue strip.

“We’ve got some challenges,” she said. “We’re trying to make the best of the space that’s there.”
