Genoa, Nev. — One lane of Highway 89 entering Markleeville opened 6 p.m. Thursday with traffic signals. That project is wrapping up quicker than I can get the news out, so don’t be surprised if it’s done before Monday morning.
I got word that the 29-acre Stoneridge Villas site, which was the manufactured home project south of the Gardnerville Walmart, sold for $5 million last month. The 159-unit project was the subject of a couple of debates, including over the trash service.
The driver in a vehicle rollover at Centerville and Highway 88 1:30 p.m. Thursday declined an ambulance ride around. Tahoe-Douglas responded to a two-vehicle collision at Spooner Junction 5:30 a.m. today. Someone definitely opted for the ride to Renown from that collision
It took me all week, but there’s a little information about a collision on Highway 208 and Albite down in Topaz Ranch Estates at 2:11 p.m. on Sunday. One woman was helicoptered with major injuries after someone tried an unsafe passing maneuver.
That crash may prompt an effort on the part of residents to get a turn lane on that highway. I recall at resident being killed as he was waiting to turn and was rear-ended.
Thursday morning’s fog bank was a surprise and so was the big storm cell that developed north of Tahoe and made a beeline for the Comstock. I counted at least a score of lightning strikes between Washoe Lake and Silver Springs at lightningmaps.org
Expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 92 degrees. The wind will shift north at 5-10 mph gusting to 20 mph.
