Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) announced $24,026,333 million in funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to extend the popular Tahoe East Shore Trail. This grant award is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant program and will fund vital road safety and trail improvements along State Route 28 on Tahoe’s eastern shore. Cortez Masto and Rosen passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to support this program and pushed to secure this critical funding.

“I’ve said throughout my time in the Senate that investing in transportation improvements around the Lake Tahoe Basin is just common sense – it supports our economy, keeps people safe, and protects our beautiful shoreline,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “I’m proud to secure this funding to expand the popular East Shore Trail which serves thousands of visitors and locals alike. I’ll always fight to address local challenges and deliver for Lake Tahoe’s communities.”
