Incline Village to Sand Harbor Bike Path
Partners: Tahoe Transportation District, Nevada Division of State Parks, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Nevada Division of State Lands, US Forest Service, Incline Village General, Improvement District, Washoe County, Nevada Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration
Fundraising Goal: $750,000
The Incline to Sand Harbor bike path will be a spectacular three-mile paved path that will provide a new opportunity for the community to experience the natural beauty of the eastern shore of Tahoe. An exceptional recreational amenity with added environmental benefits, the path will also significantly improve the safety of those traveling down the Highway 28 corridor. With a 10-foot wide path, it will meet the American Disability Act standards to ensure it is accessible to everyone to ride, walk or stroll.
The new path will begin at the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and Highway 28, expanding the current Lakeshore bike path for three more miles down to the Sand Harbor State Park. Along the way it will provide access to Hidden Beach, Memorial Point and various other scenic vistas. It is a major component of the Lake Tahoe Bikeway that will one day go all the way around the Lake.
Led by the Tahoe Transportation District, the project team identified more than $12 million dollars in public funding from various federal, state and Washoe County sources for construction. Through the generosity of our donors, the Tahoe Fund has met the goal of $750,000 to act as a match to access and leverage these public funds. The match triggered a cascade of public funding to finalize engineering plans and begin construction. Led by the Nevada Department of Transportation, construction on the new path and Rt. 28 safety improvements is scheduled to begin in late summer 2016. The final project is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
It is not too late to be a part of this wonderful project.
All funds raised above and beyond the funds needed for the public match will be put in a long-term reserve fund to assist Nevada State Parks with the operations of the bike path. Ten percent of the funds collected will go to the Tahoe Fund to support the efforts of the organization to expand recreation, conservation and stewardship in the Tahoe Basin.
