TRPA and the Tahoe Transportation District have released the final Main Street Management Plan, setting the stage for a major makeover to a 1-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 50 in the Stateline area near Heavenly Village and the casino core.
An 18-member stakeholder working group and multiple public input sessions helped shape the plan over the past two years. The plan outlines how the street would look, feel, and function after U.S. Highway 50 is realigned through the U.S. 50 South Shore Community Revitalization Project.
The Main Street Management Plan is required as part of the U.S. 50 South Shore Community Revitalization Project. That project will realign about 1 mile of the current highway to run behind the casino core and Heavenly Village, improving traffic flow through the area. The old highway alignment will be turned into a two-lane “main street” on both sides of the state line through a process called the Main Street Management Plan and will create the first community hub at Tahoe that’s not on a major highway.
