New Alignment

Route. From a new Pioneer Trail intersection (California) west of existing intersection, proceeding south along existing Moss Rd., turning east onto Montreal Rd., passing to the south of Village Center, continuing along existing Montreal Rd. and Lake Pkwy., ending at new two-lane roundabout at existing US 50/Lake Pkwy. intersection (Nevada).
Roadway. Four 12-ft. travel lanes, 8-ft. shoulders, turn pockets at major intersections and driveways. New signalized intersections at Heavenly Village Way and Harrah’s Rd.
Pedestrian Bridge. Over new US 50 alignment near California/Nevada border, connecting Van Sickle Bi-State Park to Stateline area.

Affordable Housing Opportunities

Commercial Core “Main Street”

Modifications. Between Park Ave. and Lake Pkwy., existing US 50 reduced to one lane in each direction with landscaped medians and left-turn pockets at major intersections and driveways. Bike lanes and sidewalks added and/or upgraded.
Jurisdiction. Relinquished to City of South Lake Tahoe, California and Douglas County, Nevada.

Wider Stateline Ave.

As Part of Triangle Alternative. Between existing US 50 and Pine Blvd., widened to one lane in each direction with two-way-left-turn lane and sidewalks. Right-of-way exists for widening, but two California businesses with improvements within public right-of-way would be impacted.
Optional Variation. Stateline Ave. and Lake Pkwy. north widened to two lanes in each direction with no two-way-left-turn lane. Lake Pkwy. can accommodate with restriping. Stateline Ave. has sufficient right-of-way for four lanes, but two California businesses with improvements within public right-of-way would be impacted.
