Latest Update

TTD has partnered with Nevada State Parks and UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center to provide a unique educational opportunity for students.  Field trips can be arranged to visit the new Tahoe East Shore Trail and/or the UC Davis Tahoe Science Center where students can learn more about environmental stewardship, soil science, engineering, and more.  For more information, please download the flyer here.

The North Demonstration Project, part of the Nevada Stateline-to-Stateline Bikeway Project, is complete.  The Tahoe East Shore Trail officially opened on June 28, 2019.

Construction of the 3-plus-mile shared-use trail from Incline Village to Sand Harbor began in 2016. The project has been a collaborative effort and the funding mirrors the agencies’ and public’s endeavors to make SR 28 enjoyable for all users. It was be funded through federal, state, and local funding sources, including $500,000 in matching funds, raised through private donations to the Tahoe Fund. The project will help protect environmentally sensitive resources while providing safer, adequate access to the popular corridor

For more information, please visit www.nevadadot.com/sr28.

The next segment in the project planning is the Central Corridor segment which is the eight mile stretch of SR 28 from Sand Harbor State Park to the Spooner Summit junction with US Highway 50.  Like the first three miles, this phase of the project has the potential to provide multi-benefits and a funding leveraging opportunity to accomplish a number of things: 1) The next eight miles of separated shared use path; 2) Co-located sewage effluent pipeline replacement; 3) Co-located under-grounding of NV Energy power line; 4) Co-location of conduit for future fiber-optic cable; 5) Expanded safer off-highway parking; 6) Reduced unsafe on-highway parking; 7) Bus stops for future seasonal shuttle service; and 8) Permanent boat inspection station.

The US Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, has prepared the draft Environmental Assessment document.  They will accept comments through August 11, 2019.  To view the document and submit comments, please go to USFS link.  Further design of the project is expected to begin late 2019 and be completed at the end of 2020 or early 2021.  Funding for the project will be primarily through discretionary sources.

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 for the Central Corridor Phase

The draft Environmental Assessment for the Central Corridor phase of the project is available for public comment. 

Major project milestones include the following: 


2019 Complete environmental process
End of 2020
Complete final design
TBD
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:
