Town of Truckee staff and the consultant team will start the Public Workshop with a short presentation of the four options including video simulations and renderings. Staff will be available to answer questions and take comments after the presentation. Staff will be making a recommendation to Council for the best option to pursue at the next Council meeting. The four intersection options include:

  1. Minor Improvements-connecting sidewalks on all corners, adding a sidewalk on the east side of Bridge Street, and a median island across the tracks between the north and southbound lanes.  Existing stop sign configurations at both intersections would stay the same.
  2. Roundabouts-Single lane roundabouts at both intersection. This includes pre-emption signals on all approaches.
  3. Traffic Signals-Traffic signals at both intersections would be coordinated with the railroad gates to allow traffic to continue to flow regardless of train activity.
  4. Roadway Reconfiguration-This option proposes to close Bridge Street to vehicles but would keep the railroad crossing open to bikes and pedestrians. The improvements would also include a new roundabout at McIver Undercrossing at the West River Street intersection.

Date/Time: Wednesday, April 24; 6-8 p.m.
Location: TDRPD Community Recreation Center (8924 Donner Pass Road)
