TAHOE CITY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists to expect some short delays this weekend on Highway 89 on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore for utility relocation work.
Caltrans granted a request by a contractor for Southwest Gas to continue work this weekend from Pine Street in Tahoma to Grimsel Pass Road in the Tahoe Pines area in order to stay on schedule with the project. The work is scheduled to go on around the clock. Motorists can expect delays of about 5 minutes in one-way traffic control areas.
Roadside message boards will be used to post the latest information. Unexpected weather may prolong or cause the work to be rescheduled. Caltrans urges motorists to use caution in this area and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”###
