[ARCHIVED] Roadway Updates
Closed RoadwaysAdditional Info...
For safety, the Nevada Department of Transportation has temporarily closed U.S. 50 in the Cave Rock area of Lake Tahoe following five large boulders which have fallen onto the roadway.
During the past three days, boulders roughly the size of large passenger vehicles fell from a roadside slope onto eastbound travel lanes. For safety, travel lanes have reduced to one lane in each direction since Tuesday, with both directions of traffic shifted to westbound lanes away from the rock fall area. No vehicles were involved in the slides, and no injuries were reported. The rock fall occurred near Logan Creek Drive north of Cave Rock.
Lake Tahoe Blvd. is closed at Sawmill rd. from flooding.
Kingsbury (207) is open and so is the Mt. Rose Highway (431) on the north end.
Sand and sand bags are available at the City’s Public Works Yard located at 1160 Rufus Allen Blvd. as well as South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue Station #3 located at 2101 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
