Fanny Bridge signal work beginning

Sun staff reports

Caltrans is resuming work on a project to install a pedestrian signal on Highway 89 near the south end of the Fanny Bridge.

The contractor for the project, Tennyson Electric, will also continue work to install utility poles, street lighting and various modifications to an existing traffic signal at the junction of Highways 89 and 28, also known as the Tahoe City Wye.

Most traffic interfering work will be occurring between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, according to Shelly Chernicki, a Caltrans spokeswoman. Minor delays are expected, she said.

Sometime in May, the contractor will also install a new detection loop system for the traffic signal at the Wye along with grinding and paving on Highway 89 from the bridge to the junction of Highways 89/28. More information about that work will be distributed later, Chernicki said.

Completion of the project is expected this summer.

Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling through the construction zone.
