SR 89/Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization Project Schedule Update
On October 3, 2016 Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFLHD) awarded the construction contract in the amount of $30.1 million to Martin Brothers Construction, Inc. for the SR 89 / Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization and Dollar Creek Shared-Use Trail Projects.
Winter 2016– Tree removal work will take place from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. within the project limits for the SR 89/Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization Project and within the project limits, including the Highlands and Cedar Flat neighborhoods, on Placer County and State lands for the Dollar Creek Shared-Use Trail Project. A winter operations plan will be used from now until May 2017. Winter operations permits have been granted, dependent on weather conditions, by the TRPA and USFS.
Ground surveying to establish construction limits for the Dollar Creek Shared-Used Project is expected to occur in November, pending weather and ground conditions. The 2.2-mile paved trail will be built on lands owned and maintained by Placer County and the California Tahoe Conservancy. A trail location map and related project documents can be found online.Click here.
Spring 2017– Construction will begin on the Dollar Creek Shared-Use Trail and be completed later that year.
Construction will begin on the new Truckee River Bridge located east of the existing Caltrans maintenance yard along SR 89 (River Street). The new alignment from SR 89 (River Street) to West Lake Blvd north of Granlibakken Rd. will be built along with the two roundabouts on either end. To view visuals,click here.

The Tahoe Transportation District has been the local lead agency for the
SR 89/Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization Project for six years, and it will be through to completion.
