Compost Facility Construction

Construction Underway for New Compost Facility

Construction is underway for the new Covered Compost Operation and Stormwater Improvement Project at the City of Napa's Materials Diversion Facility. Compost bunkers are being constructed with underground piping that will push air into the compost pile. These pipes will be under the concrete floor of the compost bunker. Compost will be placed nine feet high in each bunker with up to a one foot "biofilter" layer of finished compost on the top - this top layer will absorb emissions and odors. The air system from below and an irrigation system on top will be automated to provide optimal conditions for the "active phase" of composting of 22 days - then the product will be moved to a curing pile. The system will accommodate commercial food waste collection and provide more efficient composting with reduced emissions. The bunker project is on schedule and is expected to be completed in early 2019.

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.
