At the mouth of the Truckee River   Leave a comment

Just after the recent rains I took a walk through 64 Acres in Tahoe City and noticed two changes in progress in my favorite little city where the lake and river meet. First, the Truckee River is again running underneath the Lake Tahoe Dam, and second, the pathway of the new Fanny Bridge bypass can now be clearly seen, with construction scheduled to begin next summer.

The River

After falling below Lake Tahoe’s natural rim this past September, the Truckee River stopped running from it’s source. Now, after recent heavy rain and snow, the Truckee River again rose to the point where a small stream topped over the natural rim and again is running from it’s source towards Pyramid Lake. The outflow from the lake was very small, which is good news because during the rain event, the Truckee River came close to flood status in both Truckee and Reno. Once the rains stopped, Truckee River homeowners got to breathe a sigh of relief instead of mucking out there living rooms.

The Fanny Bridge Bypass

A swath of trees were just cut to delineate the pathway for the soon to be built Fanny Bridge bypass road. It runs through “64 Acres” just a bit to the south of the road which provides access for rafting and to the Tahoe City Transit Center. For those driving to Tahoe City from the West Shore, once the project is complete, you will encounter a roundabout with the choice to go north over a soon to be rebuilt Fanny Bridge, or to the west to go through 64 Acres and across the Truckee River on a new bridge. After crossing the river onto Highway 89, there will be another roundabout near the Cal-Trans lot. This one will go towards Truckee in one direction, and back to Tahoe City in the other. A third roundabout will replace the stop light at the entrance to Tahoe City and give drivers the same options they have now: Tahoe City, Truckee, or over Fanny Bridge to the West Shore.
