July Monthly Luncheon

  • Peppermill Resort 2707 South Virginia Street Reno, NV, 89502 United States (map)

TOPIC

State Route 28 Shared Use Path & Safety/Water Quality
Enhancements

ABSTRACT

The presentation will cover the current construction project along State Route 28. The project will build a three-plus mile shared-use path from the south end of Incline Village to Sand Harbor State Park. An underpass will be constructed beneath the highway to bring the path from the east to west side of the road near the Flume Trail. Two new parking areas will be constructed near the Ponderosa Ranch and Tunnel Creek Café, providing safer parking options for the almost one million recreationists who visit the area each year. Centerline rumble strips and emergency roadside turnouts will also be added to State Route 28, further enhancing motorist and pedestrian safety. In addition, water quality improvements such as enhanced roadside drainage inlets, sediment filtration systems and erosion control will be installed to help preserve the quality of stormwater entering Lake Tahoe.
