Good Morning Truckee: Olympic Meadow Acquisition & Reimagine Bridge Street Study
Olympic Meadow Property Acquisition; Reimagine Bridge Street and Transit Center Relocation Study Projects
The April 9th Good Morning Truckee program is full of timely and interesting topics. The Truckee Donner Land Trust is in contract to acquire the 30-acre Olympic Meadow Property in Squaw Valley for public access and conservation in a joint effort with the Squaw Valley Public Service District. To provide information about this acquisition, strategies and next steps to acquire the legendary property will be Mike Geary, Squaw Valley Public Service District and Perry Norris, Truckee Donner Land Trust.
Dan Wilkins, Public Works Director/Town Engineer will update attendees on two important projects underway with the Town of Truckee, how you can get involved and express your concerns and comments: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 existing transit center, located downtown at the Train Depot, often exceeds capacity causing buses to cue in the travel lanes of Donner Pass Road. Additionally, it cannot accommodate the proposed expanded transit services outlined in the Truckee TART Long Range Transit Plan. The Transit Center Relocation Feasibility Study will look at several new proposed sites, as well as explore the viability of expanding the existing facility.
