Staff report

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Work will continuing this week along the winter-battered Highway 89 in the Tahoe City area, with traffic impacts expected.

Caltrans will resume pavement repairs on the highway that it started earlier this month, stretching from Ward Creek to and including the Fanny Bridge to repair that pothole-laden stretch of 89.

This work is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Feb. 23-25, and will require one-way reversing traffic controls, according to Caltrans.

A number of potholes have developed on the highway due to the amount of precipitation so far this winter, making it necessary that this repair work occur prior to a highway rebuilding project resuming this spring.

Weather or other unexpected delays could postpone work, according to the state. Visit dot.ca.gov/dist3 to learn more and get updates.
