Construction is set to begin on the new Truckee bridge in Tahoe City.
The new bridge, east of the Caltrans maintenance yard along SR-89 and downstream of Fanny Bridge, will become the new junction between SR-89 and Nevada Route 28.
The new bridge will replace the 88-year-old Fanny Bridge and will be rebuilt to include new sidewalks and bike lanes on each side, with bridge railing that matches the existing design, according to the Tahoe Daily Tribune.
The project is headed up by the Tahoe Transportation District in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation, Placer County and other agencies.
The major construction project is expected to run through Oct. 15.
