Bicyclists could have their own path on Lake Tahoe's east shore under a plan being pursued by government officials.
Karen Mullen-Ehle is a consultant for a San Francisco-based consulting company who has been contracted as project manager for the project by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.
Officials envision a continuous 30-mile bicycle path generally along Nevada Route 28, extending from Stateline to Crystal Bay.
Bicyclists now must ride on the highway's shoulder, and Ehle says a study will determine whether the path is on or off the shoulder.
The feasibility study will come up with a preferred alignment.
Ehle says it would take at least 18 months to complete a construction plan and it could be years before the path is fully constructed.
