In 2009, the City of Napa Public Works Department launched a new program with the goal of paving 10 miles of residential streets each year using City crews. This approach achieves more "bang for the buck" as the City crews can pave residential streets more efficiently and at a lower cost. The City is using contractors to repave more heavily traveled collector and arterial streets.
In the first four years of the program, the 10-mile-a-year objective has been met and the City's Pavement Condition Index (PCI) is slowly rising. With over 140 miles of residential streets and 79 miles of collectors and arterials in need of repair, the program is making a difference but there's a lot more work to do. The goal of the program is to repave all residential streets over a 14-year period.
