INCLINE VILLAGE, Nevada — A bicycle path from Incline Village to Sand Harbor State Park on Lake Tahoe's northeast shore has moved a step closer to reality.

The Tahoe Fund says it has met its goal of raising $750,000 in donations for the project, which will trigger over $12 million in funds from local, state and federal governments.

The 10-foot-wide paved path is designed to improve safety along a busy, narrow stretch of Highway 28 where motorists often must dodge cyclists and pedestrians.

The path will be separated from the highway, and provide access to Hidden Beach, Memorial Point and other scenic vistas.

Construction on the project is slated to begin next spring.

It marks the next major link of a long-term project to encircle Lake Tahoe with a bike path.
