Minor highway work expected in Kings Beach; parking restrictions in place

Special to the Sun

KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Construction on the Highway 28 and neighborhood street overhaul in Kings Beach on Tahoe’s North Shore has come to a halt for the winter except for a few activities.

Below is an update on the latest happenings, as provided to the Sun Friday by Placer County:

ALONG THE HIGHWAY

Based on upcoming weather conditions, there is a chance AT&T may mobilize to complete its last utility relocation at the intersection of Highways 28 and 267.

With recent precipitation, crews have been monitoring the new advanced storm water treatment system to verify it is doing what it is intended to do.

Drainage patterns are also being observed to locate areas of adverse ponding or flooding. Another improvement expected to be completed in the coming weeks is installation of handrails at the entrance to several businesses between Bear and Coon streets.

SIDEWALK MAINTENANCE

Placer County is hiring a snow removal contractor to clear a five-foot-wide path along portions of the project where the new sidewalks have been built.

The Brook and Minnow parking lots will continue to be cleared. As a reminder, sidewalk snow clearing is a relatively new undertaking for the county; therefore ongoing refinement of this operation is expected.

WINTER PARKING

Placer County code prohibits on-street parking between Nov. 1 and May 1. During this period, county enforcement officers will be issuing warnings and citations for vehicles parked on the neighborhood streets.

In regard to on-highway parking, Caltrans has restrictions along Highway 28; on-street parking is restricted Nov. 1 through May 1 from midnight to 7 a.m. to allow for snow clearing operations along the shoulders.
