Public weighs in on highway options

Isaac Brambila

Planners and designers involved in the U.S. 50/South Shore Community Revitalization Project held an open house Wednesday evening with the purpose of educating the public about the project as well as receive feedback that will help them continue developing plans.

The open house, which took place at the Lake Tahoe Hotel Resort Ballroom, consisted of several presentation formats placed in different stations throughout the hotel’s ballroom. Visitors could see different blueprints, sketches, maps and informational posters displayed on walls and tables throughout the room. Those interested could also see plans on laptops and tablets provided by the organizers, as well as a video presentation displayed on a TV.

There were also several representatives involved in the planning process addressing questions and explaining different aspects of planning.

The plan aims to re-route most of the traffic in the hotel and casino areas of both South Lake Tahoe and Stateline to go around the hotels. There were different options for the route presented, both on the lakeside and the mountainside.

With the decreased flow and speed of traffic, planners aim to beautify the area as well as increase walkway and biking room. Most of the area between Park Avenue and the edge of the hotels and casinos in Stateline would be reduced to two-lane traffic.

After presenting plans and options, visitors had the opportunity to provide feedback via surveys, which could be filled out on the laptops provided as well as remotely from a personal computer.

For further information about the project or to provide feedback visit A full article about the plan and the open house will be published in an upcoming edition of the Tahoe Daily Tribune.
