Lake Tahoe Basin roadwork schedule through Saturday


U.S. Highway 50 (El Dorado County): Work has been postponed until late summer on a $14.1 million project to replace the Echo Summit Sidehill Viaduct, located 7 miles west of South Lake Tahoe. This project is replacing the current bridge, built in 1939, with a new structure to meet current design and safety standards. Completion is expected by this fall. For more information, visit 


State Route 49 (El Dorado County) from Tahoe State Park Drive to Sierra Terrace Road: Motorists can expect intermittent lane closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday for electrical work.

U.S. Highway 50 (El Dorado County) from Pioneer Trail in Meyers to Country Club Drive: Motorists can expect one-way traffic control from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday through Thursday for electrical work.  

State Route 89 (Placer County) Lake Boulevard to the Truckee River Bridge in Tahoe City: Motorists can expect one-way traffic control at various locations from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday for drainage cleaning. 

The Caltrans District Traffic Management Branch has reviewed each project and determined that individual project delays are expected to be less than the statewide policy maximum of 30 minutes, unless noted otherwise above. Lanes are numbered from the center divide (No. 1) to the shoulder (Nos. 2, 3, 4, etc.).
