Miller Avenue Construction Update - Week of January 11

The Miller Avenue Streetscape Project is an 18-month construction project to repair infrastructure and improve multi-modal use of Miller Avenue, including addressing safety for pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities, providing better transit access, and improving motorist safety.

Construction began the week of June 13, 2016 and will continue through 2017. Please note that all construction schedules are subject to change due to weather restrictions and other unforeseen delays.

Here is the latest news on the Miller Avenue Streetscape Project:

What happened last week:

The contractor was unable to work on Jan. 3 due to the weather. Work crews installed a new 15-inch sewer service line on Miller Avenue between Gomez and Camino Alto. Work crews also continued work on new center island concrete medians between Willow Street and Locust Avenue.

What is happening this week:

The contractor will continue working on new concrete center island medians between Willow Street and Locust Avenue. Work crews are also installing electrical services and pedestals in that area as well, and installing electrical and irrigation crossing sleeves between Willow Street and Valley Circle to allow future services to be installed. Due to heavy rain and high winds, several days of work will likely be lost this week.

What to expect in the next few weeks:
Work crews will continue to create the new concrete center island medians, and electrical and irrigation crossing sleeves throughout the Main Street area of work between Willow Street and Valley Circle. On Jan. 23, work crews are scheduled to begin doing demolition of existing sidewalks, curbs and gutters and installing new ones in the Parkway (between Millwood Street and Willow Street) and Gateway (between Valley Circle and Camino Alto) areas of work.

NOTE: All forecasted work is contingent on weather. Periods of heavy rain prevent work from occur and the scheduled work is pushed back accordingly.



The City recommends that motorists:

  •  Add time to your trip and plan ahead.
  • Drive slowly through the construction zone.
  • Please be courteous to your neighbors and do not to cut through the residential side streets during the construction period.

City and Construction Management staff are making every effort to mitigate impacts during construction and are working with the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce to notify local businesses and residents of the planned work. City and Construction Management staff will provide regular updates to the community regarding the project.
