We all know there are two seasons up here…. winter and construction season and we are definitely in the latter right now. From the infrastructure / road work taking place downtown in conjunction with the Railyard, the Envision DPR project, Coburn’s Crossing, the CHP project, construction out by the airport, to the SR 89/Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization Project in Tahoe City, plus linking our paved trail system to neighboring communities such as Squaw, Kings Beach, and more – lots going on!
The Truckee Chamber of Commerce August 14th Good Morning Truckee event presented three speakers who updated the community on these projects and more. See their presentations below to learn about active, upcoming, and planned roads, roundabouts, sidewalks, and trail projects.
Dan Wilkins, Town of Truckee Public Works Director/Town Engineer addressed the Truckee infrastructure projects currently underway.
Cindy Gustafson, CEO of the North Lake Tahoe Chamber/CVB/Resort Association spoke about programs underway in Tahoe City, in addition to updating attendees on the general business climate in North Lake Tahoe.
Peter Kraatz, Assistant Director of Public Works for Placer County spoke about the SR89/Fanny Bridge project, and a few other fun projects, as well as correlations to when the Kings Beach Commercial Core Improvement Project took place in regard to roundabouts and ensuring businesses stay open and accessible.
