Website NewsFlash Thumbnails - 2023-01-04T082714.653

Based on current forecasts, the Napa County Flood District and City of Napa are planning to close the flood gates located on McKinstry Street on Monday, March 13, by the end of the day. 

The Oxbow Commons Park and on-street parking along McKinstry Street is now closed to prepare for closing the flood gates.

Staff will continue to monitor the forecasts.

The Oxbow Bypass was designed as part of the Napa Flood Control Project to convey heavy storm flows for the Napa River and reduce the flooding risk for the community. The flood gates crossing McKinstry Street are closed when the river is projected to overflow into the Oxbow Bypass area.
