Tahoe City Transit Center

Date of completion: 2012


This Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Project on U.S. Forest Service Land involved construction of a 6-bus inter-modal transit facility, 131-space parking lot, relocation of 450 feet of recreation access road, relocation and extension of 1,600 LF of multi-purpose recreational trails, and all storm drainage and water quality treatment systems. Roadway and drainage improvements to State Route 89 were required for left turn channelization and highway intersection improvements for the relocated recreation access road. The project design incorporated low-impact design principles, extensive use of permeable pavements and advanced stormwater management systems.

The project design incorporated low-impact design principles, and strives to blend with the natural environment as much as possible. The project included adherence to Caltrans Standard Plans for the new SR 89 access road as well as coordination with erosion control project already underway for treatment of runoff from the state highway.
Services Provided by AEC incorporated nearly all civil, land surveying and regulatory permitting consulting services required for the project including:
Boundary and Topographic Surveys
Entitlement Processing
Civil design and cost estimating
Construction Staking

Utility Relocation Coordination

All planned improvements required stormwater runoff Best Management Practices (BMP’s) to comply with various agency requirements for managing stormwater including but not necessarily limited to:
