Kings Beach Commercial Core Improvement Project
The project is located in the community of Kings Beach, which is situated along the north shore of Lake Tahoe in Placer County, California. The project area contains both residential and commercial properties and receives high vehicular and pedestrian traffic year-round. The project includes roadway improvements to SR 28 to accommodate anticipated future transit and pedestrian needs; the installation of sidewalks, curbs, gutters, storm drains, and water quality facilities at specific locations; drainage ditch lining and revegetation at specific locations; streetscaping; the designation of specific road sites as on-street parking; and the construction of new, off-street parking lots at specific locations within the action area.
WBS designed erosion control components including two bioengineered outfalls to Lake Tahoe, new and retrofitted water quality basins, and revegetation of upland plant communities.
WBS is currently providing construction oversight and monitoring of all of the designed components as well as the landscape plantings. The second year of the project was completed in 2015, with final improvements scheduled for 2016. WBS completed oversight of landscaping as well as revegetation work associated with the basins and outfalls. WBS will continue monitoring this project for two years following its completion.
This project received a Caltrans award in 2015.
