Help us Improve Bicycling in Napa County!
Napa Countywide Bicycle Plan Update
NVTA has contracted with Toole Design Group (TDG), a nationally recognized firm known for expertise in bicycle and pedestrian planning. The project team understands that bicycle transportation systems must operate in an existing multimodal transportation environment, and that recommendations must be practical, realistic, and offer benefits to all roadway users in order to be implemented.
The Bicycle Plan update process is expected to take place over the next 18 months (see updated schedule
) and NVTA wants to hear from you!

The first Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, "Towards an Active California" (Caltrans) was adopted in May of this year, and the first Regional Bicycle Plan (Caltrans District 4-SF Bay Area) is currently in progress. The statewide plan is a policy-focused document that seeks to triple bicycling in the state by 2020. The District-4 plan will focus on projects within the region that help meet state, regional and local goals for improving the bicycling network, particularly on and adjacent to the state highway system. The Napa Countywide Bicycle Plan Update will benefit from these two recent planning efforts and will help re-establish local program policies and goals with context sensitive solutions for improving bicycling in Napa County.
