The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) started a three-year, $13 million project to improve the treatment of storm-water runoff and widen and resurface a segment of State Highway 89 from the Tahoe City “Y” north to Squaw Valley.

Work began May 28 and will occur during the daytime and nighttime hours until June 15.

Work will be restricted from the hours of 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. beginning June 15, and will continue until Labor Day at which time, daytime work will resume.

Motorists can expect one-way traffic control and various lane closures.

Additionally, utility companies continue work to relocate utility facilities at various locations on State Highway 28 between Tahoe City and Kings Beach in preparation for another water quality improvement construction project scheduled to start construction in 2009.

Motorists will see utility crews working along the roadway and can expect possible lane closures.
