Published March 9, 2023

Placer County will be holding an informational meeting on the Kings Beach Western Approach Project at 6 p.m. on March 21 at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach. County staff will present a status update on the project, followed by a question-and-answer session. 

The meeting will be live-streamed on Zoom for those who are not able to attend in person. Participants can also call in by dialing 1-877-853-5247 and enter meeting ID: 934 6043 9518.

These changes will improve overall mobility and safety while accommodating all modes of travel, including pedestrians, bikes, vehicles and transit.

“The existing intersection does not meet current accessibility standards,” said project engineer Andy Deinken. “The intersection’s bicycle lanes, sidewalks and crosswalks along state Route 28 are too narrow, close to traffic and obstructed by the signal. This project will make those areas in Kings Beach a safer place for cyclists and pedestrians.”

Once complete, the project will connect with the adjacent Kings Beach Commercial Core Improvement Project that was completed in 2017. This third and final phase of the corridor plan will address the remaining 28/267 intersection deficiencies, providing a fully integrated corridor from the Kings Beach downtown core through state Route 28 toward Tahoe City.
