Echo Summit Safety Upgrades - Road Construction

As you plan your trip to Lake Tahoe, we want you to be aware that Caltrans has several road projects this summer in the South Shore area.

We recommend you allow extra time to reach your final destination on South Shore.  

US Highway 50 over Echo Summit will be under construction this summer as Caltrans and its contractors work to replace the viaduct, built-in 1939.  

The replacement will bring the new bridge up to current safety standards.  One way traffic will be intermittent on the descent into the Lake Tahoe Basin, with estimated wait times between 20-30 minutes.  Work will be suspended each Friday at noon and resume on Monday at 3:00 pm.  Construction crews will be working hard to keep delays to a minimum.  

The California Department of Transportation is considering a complete closure of U.S. 50 at Echo Summit for two weeks, mid-October. The closure is necessary as part of the $14.1 million bridge replacement project, according to Caltrans. The existing bridge was built in 1939. The new bridge will meet current seismic and safety standards. The closure is needed to install new girders and demolish the existing structure, according to Caltrans. 

A signed detour will be in place during the full closure. Motorists can use State Route 49 from Placerville to Jackson, then State Route 88 to the beautiful Hope Valley, then on State 89 over Luther Pass into South Lake Tahoe. More information to come on exact dates.
