The Al Tahoe Mobility Project, also known as the “Safe Routes to School” project will begin striping bike lanes on Al Tahoe Blvd. beginning the week of July 17th. 

The project will be converting one of the traffic lanes in each direction into a “buffered bike lane” which is roughly 6’ of bike lane and a 5’ wide striped buffer between the traffic. 

This project would not have come to fruition without the "On Your Way" grant funding from TRPA and the majority of costs covered by Caltrans through the Active Transportation Program.
