Despite the traffic jams and countless visitors, Tahoe City residents have kept their sense of humor. Picture a line-up of tourists leaning over the bridge side-rails, looking at waters of the Truckee River. Dubbed the Fanny Bridge (destined to be replaced), the two lane bridge supports Route 89 traffic. Just downstream from the Fanny Bridge, built over the Lake Tahoe Dam is this tidy little covered walkway. Called the Lakeside Trail Crossing, this covered foot-bridge was built over the Lake Tahoe Dam in 2005. Since then, pedestrians, bicyclists and joggers have enjoyed this quiet alternative to the Fanny Bridge (seen in the background).
