New Truckee River bridge in Tahoe City aims to open this year

Construction on a new Truckee River Bridge in Tahoe City is on-hold due winter weather. 2 News reports work will resume in the spring for the Fanny Bridge that will create a bypass to realign State Route 89. Officials hope to open the new bridge this year that they say will help with evacuations and ease congestion during high tourist times. Pedestrians will also get a new walkable path under the bridge that includes bikeways.
