Bicyclists May Have Own Path On Lake Tahoe's East Shore

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.
