Project Description

The project will construct an extension of the west shore bike trail system that currently extends from Sugar Pine Point State Park to Dollar Hill in Tahoe City and the resort area of Squaw Valley located in Olympic Valley, California. The extension of this bike trail system will be consistent with goals, policies, and actions set forth in the 2010 Lake Tahoe Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

In addition, this project will link two major activity centers on the west shore of Lake Tahoe; Sugar Pine Point State Park and the Meeks Bay Resort. The project comprises a 0.7-mile long Class 1 Bike Path commencing near the southern boundary of the Sugar Pine Point State Park and extending southward to the driveway entrance to the Meeks Bay Resort along State Route 89.

Construction includes a 10-foot wide, asphalt paved path with rockeries (retaining walls) and a 65 foot prefabricated geosynthetic reinforced soil-integrated bridge system (GRS-IBS), which is part of FHWA’s “Every Day Counts” Initiatives: https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/innovation/everydaycounts/edc-3/grs-ibs.cfm.
