Enhanced No Parking Zones on State Route 28 in Incline Village Area

Post Date:06/25/2019 12:04 PM
The Nevada Department of Transportation and Nevada Highway Patrol are reminding drivers that roadside parking restrictions will continue to be strictly enforced on State Route 28 south of Incline Village when the Tahoe East Shore Trail opens on June 28, including new no parking areas in southern Incline Village.
Public roadside parking is already prohibited on many areas of State Route 28 south of Incline Village. “No parking” restrictions will now also be enforced on roadside shoulders between Sweetwater Road and southern Lakeshore Boulevard where motorists currently park and cross the busy highway to access the Flume Trail and other attractions.
Illegally-parked vehicles can be towed from no parking zones and drivers ticketed with a maximum $305 fine.
To accommodate parking, three new parking areas with approximately 90 parking spots have been constructed on State Route 28 near Ponderosa Ranch Road as part of construction of the Tahoe East Shore Trail. Opening to the public on June 29, the parking spots will be initially be offered free of charge before transitioning in coming months to paid parking through the Tahoe Transportation District. Parking revenues will help fund operation and maintenance of the new trail and parking areas. Tahoe Transportation District’s East Shore Express and Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transit also offer summer bus service directly to the new pathway.
Scheduled to open June 28, the path is aimed at enhancing safety and mobility by separating vehicle and foot traffic. More than two and a half million vehicles a year travel on State Route 28, mixing with as many as 2,000 pedestrian and bicyclists who previously parked near the roadside on peak days; creating safety, congestion and accessibility concerns on the mountainous highway. More than 10 miles of centerline rumble strips and ten emergency roadside turnouts have also been added, further enhancing motorist and pedestrian safety.
The path is NOT open to the public until the afternoon of June 28. The public is reminded to not use or trespass on any section of the path prior to June 28. Violators can be fined and receive a hefty ticket.
