New Alignment

Route. Splitting eastbound and westbound US 50 between a new Pioneer Trail intersection (California) and the Lake Pkwy. intersection (Nevada). Eastbound to follow existing route through commercial core. Westbound to proceed from US 50 intersection south along existing Lake Pkwy., continuing onto existing Montreal Rd., passing to the south of Village Center, turning north along existing Moss Rd., rejoining eastbound traffic at  Pioneer Trail.
Roadway. Both two-lanes with traffic restricted to one direction. Both with turn pockets at major intersections and driveways. New signalized intersections on westbound US 50 at Heavenly Village Way and Harrah’s Rd.
Pedestrian Bridge. Over westbound US 50 near California/Nevada border, connecting Van Sickle Bi-State Park to Stateline area.

Wider Stateline Ave.

As Part of Triangle One-way 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.
