Travel Behavior Study:
 
The Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency (NCTPA) is conducting a “Travel Behavior Study” which is a joint project with Napa County and is the first step in developing a comprehensive Countywide Transportation Plan. This study will allow us to better understand the details of how travelers move inside Napa County, including visitors.  Most standard transportation data sources focus on the daily commute travel because this is generally when the system is most congested.  In Napa, with nearly 3 million visitors per year, understanding the movements of visitors within the county is of critical importance to understand traffic patterns and transportation demand.

SR29 Corridor Study

Purpose of this Plan

This project will create a "Gateway Corridor Improvement Plan" for State Route 29 between the cities of Vallejo and Napa, passing through the City of American Canyon and portions of unincorporated Napa County. This route is one of the most significant transportation corridors in Napa County. The planning effort will bring together diverse stakeholders from throughout the community and will consider the part played by all transportation modes including ferry, auto, truck, bus, rail, air, bicycle and pedestrian. The plan will address the needs of residents, visitors, businesses and school children focusing on community-based solutions to improve corridor safety, aesthetics and mobility.

The project will address 13.3 miles of the SR29 corridor between the City of American Canyon and the Trancas St. Park and Ride lot in north Napa. It will also address linkages to the Vallejo Transit Center/Ferry Terminal, the new downtown Napa transit center (scheduled to open in winter 2012) and incorporate input from planning work currently underway in the Sonoma Boulevard corridor (SR29) in the City of Vallejo. Two thirds of the project effort will be devoted to SR29 in American Canyon.
