The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency adopted its Active Transportation Plan late last week. The plan aims to improve transportation options for bicyclists and pedestrians in the Tahoe Basin.

"It's really looking at the bike paths and sidewalk network, you know, where are there connectivity gaps," says Thomas Lotshaw, a spokesma for TRPA.

The agency is also looking at an overall transit plan for the region, as well as a project that would improve traffic flow between Tahoe communities.

Tahoe transportation officials hope to drum up support for a project that could alleviate traffic woes at the state line. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports.

Carl Hasty of the Tahoe Transportation District gave a bus tour last week to local media on a project that would reconfigure the main artery running through South Lake Tahoe.

Of the five proposals under consideration, Hasty is advocating for one that would realign four lanes of U.S. Highway 50 along Lake Parkway behind Harrah's and Montbleu casinos to the Village Shopping Center.
