LOOP ROAD PROJECT UPDATE
Tahoe Transportation District will give an update on the US 50 South Shore Community Revitalization Project (also known as the Loop Road project) on Friday, Nov. 13, at 9:30 a.m. The meeting is located at Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences, Sierra Nevada College, 291 Country Club Drive, Room 141, in Incline Village, Nevada.
The project’s environmental document is still being drafted and is expected to be released in early 2016.
According to the Tahoe Transportation District, the project would improve bicycle/pedestrian connectivity, realign traffic on Highway 50 to reduce congestion and create a “Main Street” environment with community gathering spaces. The project area stretches from Pioneer Trail in South Lake Tahoe to Lake Parkway in Stateline.
In addition to a “no-build” option, Tahoe Transportation District identified four design options.
Concerns about the project include housing, business impacts and economic development.
