NVTA broke ground on the Imola Park & Ride September 20, 2021!

Renovation of the lot, located on Golden Gate Drive near Imola Avenue in Napa, is expected to be complete in the next six months, depending on weather conditions.

This project will better facilitate the Vine’s express bus system by constructing two bus pullouts and platforms on SR 29, one at the northbound off-ramp at Imola Avenue and one at the southbound on-ramp which is adjacent to the Caltrans-owned Park & Ride lot. The project scope also includes the implementation of pedestrian infrastructure and lighting at and between the park & ride lot and the southbound and northbound ramps. Sidewalk and bicycle facilities will be constructed under SR 29 on the south side of Imola Avenue.

In addition to the bus pull outs and platforms, the project will include acceleration and deceleration lanes, traffic signal improvements for bus and pedestrian access, sheltered waiting areas with lighting, wayfinding and real-time transit information. The work also includes pavement rehabilitation of the park and ride facility. This project will improve express bus run times by allowing the bus to serve passengers on the on/off ramps to avoid deviating off the highway.  With environmental and design work completed in early 2020, NVTA hopes to begin construction in 2021.

NVTA awarded a contract for environmental and design work on the Imola Park and Ride to Kimley Horn.

The total project cost including construction is estimated to be $3 million.
