Tahoe transportation officials hope to drum up support for a project that could alleviate traffic woes at the state line. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports.

Carl Hasty of the Tahoe Transportation District gave a bus tour last week to local media on a project that would reconfigure the main artery running through South Lake Tahoe.

Of the five proposals under consideration, Hasty is advocating for one that would realign four lanes of U.S. Highway 50 along Lake Parkway behind Harrah's and Montbleu casinos to the Village Shopping Center.
