Some roads to Lake Tahoe remain open, despite fire

Despite several road closures due to the Angora Fire, visitors still can travel to Lake Tahoe’s northern and eastern shores, the California Department of Transportation said today.

Travelers can use Interstate 80 through Truckee, Highway 89 to Tahoe City, Highway 267 to Kings Beach, Highway 431 to Incline Village and Highway 50 from Highway 395, Caltrans said.

Lake Tahoe’s southern access roads, Highway 50 and 89, are closed to inbound traffic. Highway 50 is closed to eastbound traffic at Pollock Pines and to westbound traffic at the Nevada state line.

Highway 89 is closed from Pickett’s Junction to 2.7 miles south of the junction of Highway 50/Luther Pass. The Lake Tahoe Basin, southbound, is closed at Bliss State Park.
