Main stretch of Lake Tahoe highway getting repairs this week

Staff report

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — In an effort to improve winter-battered roads, California's transportation department will work on Highway 89 in the Tahoe City area this week, with traffic impacts expected.

Caltrans will perform grinding and paving work from Blackwood Creek Road to and including the Fanny Bridge in Tahoe City to repair that pothole-laden stretch of roadway.

This work is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Feb. 9-11, and will require one-way traffic control, according to Caltrans.

A number of potholes have developed on the highway due to the amount of precipitation so far this winter, making it necessary that this repair work occur prior to a highway rebuilding project resuming this spring.

Weather or other unexpected delays could postpone work, according to the state. Visit dot.ca.gov/dist3 to learn more and get updates.
