Delays possible with $3.3 million Tahoe, Truckee highway repaving

Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Evening traffic delays are possible over the next several months on Highway 267 between Truckee and Brockway Summit.

A nearly seven-mile stretch of the road between Schaffer Mill Road and the summit will be repaved, according to Caltrans, with work scheduled to begin this week.

"The work involves grinding down the existing roadway and filling it with hot mix asphalt," officials said.

There will be shoulder closures during the day and reversing one-way traffic control at night, with lane closures allowed from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday, according to Caltrans.

Teichert Construction is overseeing the $3.3 million project. Work is expected to be complete by the end of September, weather permitting.
