Let those truckers roll on by

Motorists who travel Tahoe Keys Boulevard may want to take alternate routes starting Monday.

The California Tahoe Conservancy will begin moving 83,000 cubic yards of dirt from the Upper Truckee Restoration Project next to the Tahoe Keys Marina.

About 200 trucks a day will be traveling Venice Drive and Tahoe Keys Boulevard to U.S. Highway 50. They will continue west on Highway 50 to Sawmill Road in Meyers. The trucks will follow Sawmill Road to the Meyers restoration site entrance. Empty trucks will go west along Sawmill Road and turn north onto Lake Tahoe Boulevard.

Flaggers will be stationed along the route to minimize congestion.

However, traffic delays may occur at the intersections where Venice Drive and U.S. Highway 50 intersect Tahoe Keys Boulevard. Eloise Avenue to Third Street or Venice Drive to 15th Street are alternate routes.

One of the basin’s largest wetland restoration projects, 11 acres of the 23-acre site between the marina and the mouth of the Upper Truckee River will be restored to wetland habitat. The dirt removal phase is expected to last through August.

For more information on the project, call the Conservancy project line at (530) 542-5475.
