Press Release- Public Meeting on Proposed Oak Knoll District Portion of the Vine Trail Bicycle and Pedestrian Path

On Thursday February 27, 2014 a public meeting will be conducted to provide an overview on the design and construction of the Oak Knoll District portion of the Vine Trail. The public is invited to attend in order to learn about the project and to discuss the design elements with the project’s managing engineers.
The Vine Trail is envisioned as a 47-mile walking/biking trail system, separated from road traffic, which will link the Baylink Ferry Terminal in Vallejo to the City of Calistoga. The Vine Trail will provide recreational opportunities for the region and become the backbone of Napa County’s bicycle network. This project proposes to design and construct the Oak Knoll District portion of the Vine Trail, named to match the American Viticultural Area (AVA) through which this section of the trail passes. The Oak Knoll District portion of the path will be situated along the east side of Solano Avenue from Redwood Road in the City of Napa to California Drive in the Town of Yountville. The path will typically be ten feet wide with shoulders and will include the construction of three bridges, traffic safety improvements at cross streets, wayside rest areas, tree removal and tree planting.
Representatives of NCTPA, the Vine Trail Coalition and project the design team from Riechers Spence & Associates will be present to review the plans and seek public input.
