The City of Calistoga plans to build a pedestrian bridge spanning the Napa River in the residential neighborhood west of Berry Street, near Logvy Park.
The project will be discussed at the Active Transportation Advisory Committee meeting at 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 1, at the Calistoga Community Center, 1307 Washington St. The meeting will be conducted in compliance with social-distancing protocols.
Two sites were considered for the project, South Oak Street and Gold Street. Criteria used to compare the two bridge sites were property constraints, environmental constraints, neighborhood compatibility, use and utilization, off-site infrastructure, constructability, project cost, and potential for grant funding, according to a staff report.
Based on the analysis, the city determined that the proposed bridge site connecting South Oak Street to Logvy Park best satisfies the criteria. This bridge would require less infrastructure to be built, would be less disruptive to the neighborhood, and would be easier to construct, the report said.
Both of these proposed bridges would increase connectivity, improve pedestrian safety, and promote alternate forms of transportation including walking and biking.
The Advisory Committee will also consider a request to recommend an amendment to the Calistoga Active Transportation Plan to remove the planned “Lava Vine Trail” behind the Calistoga Motor Lodge.
