Paving Work to Start on State Highway 28 in North Lake Tahoe Next Week
TAHOE CITY – Two stretches of State Highway 28 in North Lake Tahoe will be repaved starting next week, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced today.
The work includes a five-mile section from Sierra Terrace Road in Tahoe City to Carnelian Bay and a half-mile stretch east of Kings Beach to the Nevada state line (see map)
Work is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday and should be completed by the end of July. However, unexpected weather or other events could extend the project. The work will be performed under one-way traffic control with delays up to 10 minutes in each direction.
The construction contract was awarded to VSS International, Inc., with a low bid of $815,375.
The pavement will be repaved using a microsurfacing treatment that is similar to a slurry seal. It consists of the application of a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion, aggregate (small crushed rock) and chemical additives to the roadway. The treatment doesn't rely on the sun to dry it so it can be done at night.
