TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Two stretches of Highway 28 on the California side of Lake Tahoe are scheduled be repaved starting this week, according to Caltrans.

Work includes a five-mile section from Sierra Terrace Road in Tahoe City to Carnelian Bay, and a half-mile stretch east of Kings Beach to the Nevada state line.

Barring weather, work is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday and should be completed by the end of July, according to Caltrans.

One-way traffic controls, with delays up to 10 minutes in each direction, are planned.

“The pavement will be repaved using a microsurfacing treatment that is similar to a slurry seal,” officials said. “It consists of the application of a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion, aggregate (small crushed rock) and chemical additives to the roadway. The treatment doesn’t rely on the sun to dry it, so it can be done at night.”

The construction contract was awarded to Sacramento-based VSS International, Inc., with a low bid of $815,375.
