The Nevada Department of Transportation, after having been met with vocal community resistance, has removed the “road diet” portion of the U.S. 50 Tahoe East Shore Corridor Management plan.
NDOT said they will continue to seek possibilities that provide solutions as multifaceted as the problems they aim to solve.
The problems identified through NDOT’s analysis included difficulty turning in/out of side streets and driveways, bike and pedestrian safety, on-highway parking and speeding. The proposed solutions didn’t go over well with the community it would impact and protests led to an organized grassroots group set on being heard.
