The first of several pilot wayfinding signs are now in place along Fairway Drive just off of Highway 89 in Tahoe City. These are being built as part of the new North Tahoe Fire Station project. Others have been located by the Tahoe City Public Utility District along the North Shore bike trails. Soon there will be additional signage reflecting the same design near the Tahoe City Transit Center.
The Placer County Board of Supervisors will consider giving final approval of TOT funding to keep the Squaw Valley bike trail clear of snow this winter. In the mean time the bike trails, although not officially open, are being used by many people for walking, running, and riding. These are just a few examples of NLTRA supported projects that add to the enjoyment of visitors and residents alike.
