Watch for New Signal
NAPA COUNTY – Caltrans and its local stakeholders have activated a new traffic signal light on State Route 29 (SR-29) at Grayson Avenue in St. Helena.
The new traffic signal light was activated on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at approximately 11:00 AM. The signal light was originally scheduled to be activated on November 2 but was postponed because of rain, additional electrical work and testing.
Now that the signal is activated, all motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians are required to make a full and complete stop when approaching a red light.
Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians are reminded to travel through this intersection near St. Helena High School with extra caution as this is a time of adjustment for everyone. CHP will be patrolling the area.
The new signal light is part of the SR-29 Channelization Project and was completed through a joint effort between the City of St. Helena and Caltrans.
Major construction of the Channelization Project was completed last month. The project rehabilitates the pavement on SR-29 on and near St. Helena, provides a continuous 2-way left turn lane and reconstructs the bike path adjacent to SR-29 near Whitehall Lane.
