The April 21st Virtual Community Meeting Recording is available here.

Project Overview:

The City of Mill Valley recognizes East Blithedale Avenue as a vital corridor between downtown Mill Valley and Highway 101 as it serves as the northern gateway into the City’s residential, school and business areas.

The East Blithedale Avenue Rehabilitation Project is currently divided into 3 phases and the goal is to rehabilitate aging pavement conditions, install new bike lanes, upgrade existing traffic signals, and improve access to local residential, schools, and businesses.  

The project will interrupt the normal course of business and residential living in the projeast_blithedale_streetviewect area. The City is working to address key issues to minimize, where possible, construction-related impacts such as traffic congestion, noise, debris, parking, business operations, deliveries, and accessibility for residents, employees, and customers.

Phase I from Tower/Kipling Drive to Amicita Ave. is currently under construction and final paving is expected to be completed in June 2022.

Project Improvements for Phases II and III include:

  • Pavement repairs
  • New ADA compliant curb ramps
  • New rapid flashing beacons at crosswalks
  • Storm drain system improvements
  • Sewer main repair, and curb and gutter repair
