Document Description
The TTD is proposing the US 50/South Shore Community Revitalization Project, which is designed to improve the Tahoe Basin's transportation network while addressing affordable housing, community revitalization, and mobility needs, and contributing to environmental gains. The project has been contemplated in regional and local planning documents for decades and is one of the region's largest capital improvements in regional and local planning documents for decades and is one of the region's largest capital improvement projects. As proposed, the project would realign US 50, enabling the creation of a pedestrian-oriented, "Main Street" through the middle of the existing tourist core, where the highway is now located. Walking, bicycling and reliable transit would be attractive and safe transportation options and community gathering places would be available in the tourist core. Commercial core revitalization is intended to increase visitor spending and catalyze, adjacent private construction investment.
