Location


From the California-Nevada stateline at Crystal Bay, the Scenic Byway continues through Incline Village to US 50 at Spooner Summit.
The two-lane road south of Incline is the only Corridor access for over one million recreating visitors and 2.6 million vehicles per year.
To address safety, traffic and environmental impacts, the TTD is collaborating with 12 area agencies on Corridor Management.


Goals


Integrating transportation choices like transit and walking/biking trails will reduce traffic, enhancing the visitor experience.

Adding park-n-ride lots and paved spaces will make pedestrians safer. They’ll avoid walking in traffic after shoulder parking.
Transportation solutions like the East Shore Express will help protect the lake by reducing car use, erosion and fine sediment run-off.


Proposed Solutions

Conceptual drawings of a sampling of Corridor Management Plan recommendations.

Off-highway Parking

Relocating shoulder parking to 674 safe, environmentally appropriate spaces, such as the Secret Harbor Trailhead lot.
Shared-use Trails

Building a clearly defined system for biking/walking that connects parking, trailheads and recreation.

Viewpoints &
Emergency Pullouts


Creating 12 viewpoints, with short-term parking, and 27 emergency pullouts to reduce congestion and improve safety.
Transit
Service


Continuing service like the East Shore Express, adding northern and southern park-n-ride locations, to manage access.

Interpretive Program

Highlighting environmental, cultural and historical information to enhance the experience on the trail and SR 28.
Visual Environment

Designing a hardscape with materials that echo the Corridor’s natural scenic quality for a national park ambiance.


Timeline

The Environmental Assessment for the three miles of shared-use path and parking areas is currently being supplemented to reflect minor alignment changes, based on comments from the public for the bikeway, and will include a short review period. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2016 with 2018 targeted for completion.

Major project milestones include the following: 


2016 Environmental process completed
2016 – 2017 Final design completed
2016 – 2018 Construction


Partners

An unprecedented 13 agencies, working together, can access multiple sources of funding and meet the needs of the SR 28 Scenic Byway in a holistic way. The Corridor Management Plan proposes a framework for long-term collaboration between:
