Lake Tahoe route 28 project on schedule to finish Friday

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. ” The $5 million State Route 28 resurfacing project between Sand Harbor and the U.S. Route 50 intersection is on schedule and will be fully finished by 5 a.m. Friday, a Nevada Department of Transportation Spokesman said Wednesday.

The project had completely shut down the 8-mile path between 7 p.m. Sunday and 5 a.m. Friday the past three weeks, starting May 3.

The project saw no delays during the three-week closure, said NDOT’s Scott Magruder.

The projects second phase involves one lane of traffic control from May 22 to July 2 on State Route 28 from Sand Harbor to the East Lakeshore Boulevard intersection. Motorists can expect half-hour delays during Phase 2, although it also plans to keep the road open without delays on the weekend.

If Granite cannot finish phase two by July 2, in time for the Fourth of July Weekend, Magruder said NDOT will levy a $15,000-per day fine against the contractor until work is completed.
