Get ready for road work

Caltrans is starting a variety of road projects throughout the Truckee-Tahoe region this summer.

Summer means road construction, and this year Caltrans has a particularly full plate of improvement projects.

“This year and the next few years may seem a little more than usual,” said Shelly Chernicki, Caltrans spokeswoman.

Projects include roadside work to improve water quality on Highway 267 and at Highway 28 near the California and Nevada state line.

A pedestrian signal will be built in Tahoe City near Fanny Bridge, and the state transportation agency will update its highway advisory radio system, used in case of accidents and weather events.

Other road work will focus on damages caused by heavy rain and snow over the winter.

Caltrans officials will work on Interstate 80 east of Truckee, where a landslide closed the interstate during the New Year’s rain storms.
