May 20, 2010
TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Road improvements should present a frustrating challenge next week through Tahoe City as motorists will not be allowed to park on the street on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Caltrans road crews will grind asphalt on both sides of Highway 28. Caltransand#8217; Tahoe Basin Outreach Coordinator Deanna Shoopman said work will begin at the connection of Highway 89 and 28 and run until Sierra Terrace Road at the northeastern end of downtown.
and#8220;The work will be done during daylight hours, and it will use a traffic lane shift,and#8221; Shoopman said, explaining only one direction of traffic will be open at a time.
Workers will grind the westbound lane on Tuesday and the eastbound lane on Wednesday.
Road crews will patch sections of State Highway 267 next week between North Star Drive and Brockway Summit, barring inclement weather, Shoopman said, and she expects the $327,000 project to be finished before Memorial Day weekend.
Work will last from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 7 a.m. to noon on Friday. Drivers should expect slower speeds of about 25 miles per hour and delays between 15 and 30 minutes, she said.
