Earlier this year, Napa County Public Works finished a project to install rumble dots along Silverado Trail, between Trancas Street in Napa, and Yountville Cross Road.  This project is part of an ongoing effort by the County to improve safety for cyclists and drivers along one of the most ridden stretches of road in the valley.

Our thanks to Supervisor Alfredo Pedroza, and Rick Marshall, Deputy Director of Public Works Rick Marshall, for their support on this project.

If you’ve ridden along Silverado Trail and would like to share your experience with the new dots, please drop us a line at info@napabike.org.

Napa ‘rumble dots’ projects seeks to protect motorists, bicyclists

Oct 1, 2016

Napa County has turned to “rumble dots” to try to keep motorists from drifting off an eight-mile stretch of Silverado Trail and improve safety for bicyclists riding in the shoulders.

New shoulder striping along the sides of the road is made of a thermoplastic material. At intervals of every couple of feet, a cookie-shaped mass of the material has been added on top of the stripe.
