Route 89 South West Lake Tahoe - is it open in July for RV?

We are planning to drive from South of Lake Tahoe to Sugar Pine State Park in the Western part of Lake Tahoe with a 30 feet RV. Google maps sends us to drive the long cycle through the Eastern shore of the lake and says that route 89 may be closed. Is this relevant only in the winter and in July we shouldn't have a problem to go the short way with route 89 or should we expect to drive the long way?

Thanks

We visit every July and the roads are always open when we drive around different parts of the lake. A fire is all I can think of for the road to be closed.

We have been there in winter when it has been closed due to snow.
