Project Case Study

US 50/SOUTH SHORE COMMUNITY REVITALIZATION PROJECT

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CALIFORNIA

Wood Rodgers was retained by the Tahoe Transportation District (TTD) to complete the Project Study Report (PSR) and the Project Report (PR) for US Highway 50/Stateline project. The project area stretches approximately two miles along US 50 in the California/Nevada Stateline area within the City of South Lake Tahoe in California and within Douglas County in Nevada. The project proposes to realign US 50 around the commercial core area to promote redevelopment and multi-modal use and to ease traffic congestion. Currently, two alternatives are under consideration; one of which proposes the installation of roundabouts at the eastern end of the project. All alternatives include significant right-of-way and community impacts and require significant outreach efforts by Wood Rodgers.
