Reimagine Bridge Street Project Advisory Committee Meeting | Mon., Apr. 29 | 4:30 p.m. | Truckee Town Hall

The Reimagine Bridge Street project encompasses intersection improvements on Bridge Street at Donner Pass 

Road and East/West River Streets. The Town of Truckee is exploring options for improving these intersections. 

Eighteen intersection alternatives have been considered and are grouped into four categories. The sidebar tabs and chart below present a summary of the top option from each alternatives category.

Click through each to watch a short video enacting the intersection scenarios. 

Survey results are available here!


PROJECT AREA: Bridge Street intersections at Donner Pass Road & East/West River Street

1. Improve pedestrian safety and circulation through implementing sidewalks on both sides of Bridge Street and at least one protected crosswalk across Bridge Street at both West/East River Streets and Donner Pass Road intersections. The protected crosswalk(s) would include either refuge islands, stop signs or signals.

2. Maintain or improve traffic flow with or without a train present.

3. Designate a Quiet Zone to eliminate the requirement for engineers to sound the train horn when approaching the track crossing.

4. Protect historic buildings.
