Progress on a continuous 4-mile pathway between Tahoe Sierra and Stateline plowed ahead earlier this month when the California Tahoe Conservancy Board approved a $3.182-million grant.
The grant to El Dorado County will help fund the next phase of the South Tahoe Greenway Shared Use Trail, which fist kicked off in 2015 with the construction of a 0.42-mile section linking Herbert Avenue and Glenwood Way in the Bijou neighborhood.
Together with the first phase, this phase will provide almost 2 miles of continuous shared use trail in South Lake Tahoe, according to CTC.
“This portion of the trail is an important link between the Tahoe Sierra [formerly known as Sierra Tract] and Bijou neighborhoods, Lake Tahoe Community College, and the community playfields,” El Dorado County Supervisor and Conservancy Board Member Sue Novasel said in a press release. “The county is well positioned to construct the trail, given its extensive experience building trails in sensitive environments at Lake Tahoe.”
