CA 29 Roundabouts Project Concept

City of Napa's Roundabouts Project is Underway

The City of Napa’s Roundabouts Project is underway. The project to construct the State Route 29 (SR 29) Northbound First Street Ramps and California Boulevard Roundabouts began back in July 2018. Here are a few updates to the project, and what you can expect in the coming months and beyond.

Utility relocation (AT&T, Comcast and PG&E) is necessary to clear the necessary space to begin the demolition and grading of the new intersection.

Similar to the utilities, there are some trees that need to be removed to accommodate the footprint of the project. A tree contractor, The Professional Tree Care Company, will take out only those trees that need to be removed in the coming months. There will be occasional traffic control through the intersections during this phase.

Demolition, grading for the project and construction of the roundabouts will begin in earnest during Spring 2019 and is anticipated to be complete by Winter 2020.

The final phase of the project will be to install project landscaping, which includes the planting of trees and ornamental plants designed to create an enhanced east-west corridor through Napa as well as replace plantings and trees removed as part of the project.

- AT&T and Comcast have mobilized and relocated their facilities.

In Progress:
- PG&E Gas and Electric mobilizing in Sept/Oct 2018 to relocate their underground facilities.
- Tree Removal will be occurring between now and the end of November 2018.

Coming Up:
- Staged demolition and grading to begin in April 2019.

Join the City of Napa for Arbor Day on Saturday, September 22nd!

Did you know? The City of Napa is a Tree City USA! To maintain this status, the City celebrates Arbor Day by planting trees in the community. This year's 29th annual Arbor Day celebration will be held at Kennedy Park on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 9 AM to 12 PM. The event will take place on National Public Lands Day, a nationwide event where people can volunteer their time to restore public lands. The focus will be to plant trees in areas that experience heavy recreational use, have had trees removed and there is need for additional shade. Tree types that are better suited to the Napa climate will be planted that day. We will be planting over 160 new trees in the park and are encouraging volunteers of all ages to come out and help us celebrate by planting a tree. Volunteers will also help spread mulch and refresh paint throughout the park, including the rails at the Skate Park. Sponsors will have fun giveaways for volunteers, and lunch will be served - along with musical entertainment when the work is done! Napa County's Resource Conservation District, along with other agencies, will be on hand to provide information about their programs as well.

For more information and to sign up to volunteer, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 707-257-9960. We hope to see you there! Volunteers
