Date of completion: 2016
Description: State Route 89 between Squaw Valley Road and Tahoe City was reconstructed by Caltrans during the summer of 2010. The project has included several vehicle pull-outs along the highway, which, in turn, have become heavily utilized for recreational access to the Truckee River and the Truckee River Bike Trail. However, there was no direct or formal access to the adjacent bike trail or river from the pull-outs. As such, informal access was occurring at multiple locations causing safety concerns as well as erosion between SR 89 and the bike trail. AEC provided survey, civil design, permitting, and construction inspection services for the implementation of permanent BMPs and improved access.
