City of Napa Recommended for $400,000 in Grant Funding through Safe Streets & Roads for All Program
On Friday, February 2, 2023, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced a historic $800 million in grant awards for 510 projects through the new Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Grant Program, a record amount of funding to improve roads and address traffic fatalities.
The City of Napa will benefit from a portion of these grant awards, as the City's grant application has been recommended for a total of $400,000 in funding (with a $100,000 required local match). In the coming weeks, City of Napa staff will work with federal officials from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration to execute a grant agreement, in order to begin work. The City of Napa was awarded this grant funding specifically to develop a corridor study along Jefferson Street, which has been identified as a high-injury corridor in Napa. Through this study, a plan will be developed that will identify improvements to enhance pedestrian and bicycle facilities, as well as traffic safety. The work will also advance the planning for streetscape improvements on Jefferson Street that were included in the newly adopted general plan. As this work continues, the City will share regular updates on the progress of the project.
Traffic safety remains a top priority for the City of Napa, and the Safe Streets and Roads for All grant funds will further the City’s goals of creating safer streets for our community.
