Paving project starts Monday in Meyers

A paving project to impact about 8.6 miles of Highway 89 will begin in Meyers on Monday.

The effected road will be microsurfaced, which involves applying a cement-mixed slurry seal to the pavement, and then restriped. Work will take place from the intersection of Highway 89 and Highway 50 to the El Dorado-Alpine county line.

The project costs $821,821 and is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 8, according to Caltrans.

One-way traffic control will be in place weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., but there will be no work on weekends and around the July Fourth holiday. For updates on all Caltrans projects in the Tahoe Basin, go to, follow @TahoeRoads on Twitter or “like” Tahoe Roads on Facebook.
