FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Paving Work Scheduled for Next Week on Highway 267
LAKE TAHOE – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is advising motorists of traffic control on a stretch of State Route 267 in North Lake Tahoe next week for a repaving project. Delta Construction of Sacramento will be grinding and repaving 2.2 miles of the highway from just south of Brockway Summit to Stewart Way in Kings Beach. The cost of the contract is $800,000. Caltrans and the CHP will be conducting one-way traffic control from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday of next week. Work may extend to Friday and into the following week, but the project will be done well in advance of the inaugural Ironman Lake Tahoe race on Sunday, Sept. 22. The bicycle course includes that section of the highway. Motorists can expect up to 15-minute delays traveling through the work zone "We're pleased we were able to get this repaving work scheduled in advance of the race to provide a safer riding environment for the competitors," Caltrans District 3 Director Jody Jones said. Caltrans reminds motorists to "Slow for the Cone Zone." For the latest highway traffic news, follow Caltrans District 3 on Twitter or like us on Facebook.
