2024 Summer Road Construction Resources and Updates

Several projects are occurring in the region that will improve and repair infrastructure but will impact traffic and transportation at multiple locations between Incline Village and Tahoe City this summer. From replacement gas lines and water mains to broadband installation, replacement paving and other projects, it’s all underway.

While this summer (and next summer) will continue to be a challenge for drivers on SR 28, please keep the long-term gain in mind – new gas lines and broadband capabilities for the benefit and safety of our community plus smooth and durable pavement.

Here’s where to find updates related to what’s happening and where to expect delays:


Update for the week of June 20-July 5:

  • No work on the gas line replacement project on SR-28 between Tahoe City and Kings Beach will take place this week.
  • On Monday, July 1, during daytime hours, there is a lane closure at Sierra Terrace to benefit a TCPUD waterline project.

All work on road construction projects will be suspended on weekends and holidays. Schedules are subject to change due to weather, equipment or material availability or other unexpected events.
