Traffic Delays between Homewood and Tahoma, West Lake Tahoe, CA
Beginning April 1, 2013, road construction will begin again on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe between Homewood and Tahoma, California.
There is a local Tahoe joke about only having two seasons: winter and orange cone. Okay, it’s a little funny to only have winter and road construction as your two seasons, but the reality is, road construction is never fun, so expect traffic delays on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe between Homewood and Tahoma this spring, summer and fall 2013.
This Tahoe road construction work is a multi-year project that began last summer and will not be completed until 2016. Southwest Gas has begun putting in a new natural gas pipe line, along with the California Department of Transportations’ installation of a new storm water system along Highway 89 South.
This year’s work will begin April 1, and end in November 2013, so you’ll have road construction along the West Shore of Lake Tahoe for the rest of the year.
If you’ll be traveling along the West Shore of Lake Tahoe (West Lake Tahoe), expect up to 20 minute delays in each direction Monday – Thursday 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. between the Homewood to Tahoma, California area on Highway 89 South.
Traffic will be restricted to single lane passage at different points, and once that traffic backs up, you can expect traffic to be bunched up in intervals as it moves along the West Shore.
What that means to you even if you are not traveling along the West Shore is that you’ll hit heavy traffic at the “Y” in Tahoe City as those large groups of cars travel together causing additional delays in other areas that don’t have road construction. It’s the domino effect here at work in our Tahoe area, which means you’ll have heavy traffic at times along the Truckee River corridor and along the North Shore.
If you’ll be traveling in the Tahoe area add extra travel time to get to your destination. You’ll save yourself a lot of frustration and reduce the stress of the delays. Be safe everyone!
