Truckee, SLT bike trails completed

Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition

The Federal Highway Administration recently completed a new Class III bike route along a portion of Donner Pass Road in Truckee that winds up old Highway 40, according to the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition. The road was widened to allow for an uphill bike lane east of the pass and bike lanes on both sides west of the pass. Temporary striping is in process and permanent striping and signage will be placed in spring 2023.

On the South Shore, the City of South Lake Tahoe has completed the Class I (separated) bike path from the Y to Viking Way. The Lake Tahoe Blvd Bike Trail adds a crucial 0.6 miles of bike trail with fully accessible ramps and driveway crossings. Streetlights will also be added along this stretch. |
