RENO, Nev. (AP) - Transportation planners on Lake Tahoe's north shore are moving forward with plans to make more than $30 million in improvements over the next four or five years to streets, sidewalks, bike lanes and drainage systems along the lakefront highway at Kings Beach, Calif.
The Placer County Board of Supervisors awarded a $21.3 million contract last week to Sparks, Nev.-based Q&D Construction for the main work on a 1.1 mile stretch of California Highway 28.
It's part of the Kings Beach Commercial Core Improvement Project intended to make the community more pedestrian friendly while accommodating anticipated future transit needs.
In addition to installing new sidewalks, curbs, gutters and storm drains, the project will include designation of areas for on-street parking and construction of new off-street parking.
