Kristen O'donnell wrote in asking why some trees up at Lake Tahoe have been marked with pink tags ? She wants to know if it's the start of a multi-use path ?
Several viewers inquired about this and some were concerned the trees are going to be chopped down since they have been tagged. I checked with Scott Magruder over at NDOT and he says the pink tags signify a preliminary site for a bike trail linking North and South Lake Tahoe. Part of the work on the bike path has already started at South Lake. The area along Highway 28 near Incline Village has been identified as a possible route for the path. Magruder says there are a number of public agencies involved in the project and a lot of environmental studies will have to be completed before any work gets underway on the section that has been tagged. We'll keep you posted as we hear more about any developments with this project.
