UPDATE:Caltrans to begin construction of State Route 29/221 Soscol Junction Interchange Project on Monday, July 25

(Nesting Birds have fledged near the project area)

Caltrans will resume the start of construction on the Soscol Junction Interchange Project in southern Napa County on Monday, July 25.
 
The project was delayed last week due to nesting birds in the area and are no longer nesting in the area.
 
Starting Monday, July 25th the speed limit will be reduced by 10 MPH within the project limits. Once work begins, motorists are encouraged to slow down as crews will be working during the day from 7:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.
 
Overnight work will include lane closures as crews will be installing crash cushions and moveable concrete barriers also known as k-rails along State Route 29 highway median and southbound shoulder.
 
The overnight work hours will be starting at 9:00 P.M. and ending at 6:00 A.M.
 
The three-year project will replace the signalized intersection of State Route 12/29, State Route 221 and Soscol Ferry Road with an interchange composed of an overpass and two roundabouts, a configuration that will add fluidity to traffic flow, reduce congestion and enhance bicycle and pedestrian connectivity.
 
Caltrans crews will landscape the area with local plants, including oaks whose canopies will visually screen the interchange from distant onlookers.
 
Caltrans will build 1,200 feet of Class I bicycle and pedestrian paths as part of the project. Eventually the bicycle/pedestrian lanes will connect to the Vine Trail, a 47-mile multi-use path that will stretch from Calistoga to the ferry in Vallejo.
