Public invited to view transportation plans

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency has released an updated regional transportation plan and is inviting citizens to view and comment on the plan at a workshop on Wednesday.

The plan features detailed information about the future of transportation in the Lake Tahoe Basin, including major improvement projects, proposed bike trails, basin train systems, maps and air quality requirements.

The meeting will take place 4 to 8 p.m. at the South Lake Tahoe council chambers, 1900 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

“We encourage residents to get involved and contribute comments, suggestions and recommendations,” said Richard Wiggins, transportation division chief for TRPA. “This plan will help shape transportation improvements for years to come and we want to ensure we are responding to the needs of our community. Our goal is to continue to meet or exceed established air quality requirements while providing successful transportation solutions to both residents and visitors in the Tahoe basin.”

Copies of the plan are available, including free CDs, at the TRPA front desk, 128 Market Street in Stateline. Printed copies of the plan are available for $25, also available at the TRPA front desk. A copy can be downloaded from the TRPA Web site,

To comment on the plan, contact Kristine Bunnell, senior transportation planner at the TRPA, at (775) 588-4547, ext. 289 or by e-mail at
