Parking Lot X users referred to Pearl Street garage

UPDATED Tuesday April 22, 2014

Parking Lot X, commonly known as the “Cinedome parking lot,” was closed on Friday, April 18, 2014, as construction of the Oxbow Bypass ramps up. Most of the current parking lot will become part of the Bypass channel - a key component of the Napa River Flood Project – which will be constructed over the next year. Parking Lot X-West, on the opposite side of West Street, will remain open. The City encourages current users of Parking Lot X to take advantage of the 250 all-day parking spaces available in the Pearl Street parking garage. The Second Street garage provides 77 all-day spaces. A project information website has been created at http://www.napariverdrybypass.org/

Downtown Streets Conversion moves into sidewalk replacement phase

UPDATED Thursday April 10, 2014

Along First and Second Streets from Main to Jefferson, the Downtown Streets Conversion Project continues. Sidewalk replacement has begun on the north side of First Street from Main to Coombs. Access to businesses is being maintained,, and much of the work will be done in the nighttime hours to minimize impacts. Three traffic signals were removed last week - at First and Randolph, Second and Randolph and Second and Franklin - and stop signs were installed for traffic traveling north and south on Randolph and Franklin. Traffic on First and Second at these intersections now flows freely without a stop sign or signal. Drivers should exercise caution in these areas during the adjustment period. The overall project will continue into June and the end result will convert First and Second Streets from one-way traffic to two-way traffic. The conversion plan was born out of the Downtown Specific Plan process, as a means to increase the economic vitality of Downtown Napa. Illustrations and more information can be found here.
