LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KTXL) — SR-89 between Bliss State Park and Eagle Fall Campground has reopened after closing on Friday morning due to an overturned big rig, according to CHP South Lake.
The big rig went over the embankment near Emerald Bay along SR-89 at around 11 a.m. on Friday and caused traffic to be blocked in both directions.
Crews were unable to free the tractor trailer on Friday and had to postpone efforts until Saturday morning.
Just after midnight on Saturday Caltrans said that attempts to recover the big rig were unsuccessful and that the roadway would remain closed.
Crews resumed efforts to remove the truck early Saturday morning and estimated that by 10 a.m. the roadway would be reopened.
At 10:35 a.m., CHP South Lake shared that the roadway was reopened.
