Purpose of the Plan
Highway 29 between Napa and Vallejo is one of the most significant transportation corridors in Napa County. Within American Canyon, Highway 29 serves as the city's main thoroughfare and must provide access to places visited by local residents as well as regional customers. A planning effort is underway to not only reduce traffic congestion but also to make the highway corridor friendlier for pedestrians and bicyclists.
A project, funded by a $300,000 Caltrans grant is underway to bring together various stakeholders from throughout the County and our local community. The effort will look at traffic relief as well as the design of bike routes, pedestrian crossings and ways to help speed bus service from Napa to the Vallejo ferry terminal. Individuals will be given several opportunity to get involved including the Advisory Committee discussed below as well as community workshops.

Citizens Advisory Committee
The Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency (NCTPA), and its partners, the City of American, City of Napa, County of Napa, City of Vallejo and the Caltrans, is launching a planning study to investigate corridor improvements along State Route 29 from the Vallejo Ferry Terminal to Trancas Street in Napa. NCTPA is seeking 15 members of the community to serve on SR 29 Citizens Advisory Committee. The Committee will be required to meet 5 times over the next year, beginning in November, 2012.
Interested individuals should submit a letter of interest to SR29Study@nctpa.net or fax it to 707-259-8637. The letter needs to be sent to the attention of SR29 Study and include your name, address, email, phone number, experience service on citizen's committees and/or transportation related studies, and confirmation that you will attend all five meetings.
Letters of Interest must be received no later than close of business November 16, 2012. For a copy of the FLYER, click HERE.
