March 18, 2013
TAHOE CITY, Calif. — A pair of public meetings on Wednesday will reveal roadwork plans this summer for Highway 89 on Lake Tahoe's West Shore.
According to a press release from Placer County, Caltrans will resume a storm water project along the highway between Tahoe City and Tahoma this summer at the same time as Southwest Gas work on the area's natural gas pipeline system.
Caltrans and Southwest Gas officials will discuss the projects and be on hand for questions at the Wednesday meetings, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and 6-7 p.m. at the Tahoe City Public Utility District board room at 221 Fairway Drive in Tahoe City.
According to a previous report, the pipeline work began last year and is being done to meet customer needs for natural gas on the West Shore. The Caltrans work, which also took place in 2012, includes rehabbing drainage and treatment systems and installing curbs and gutters to protect Tahoe's water quality.
For information, residents can call Cynthia Messina of Southwest Gas at 702-365-2044 or Steve Nelson of Caltrans at 530-701-9459.
