The City of Mill Valley is in the midst of the latest phase of its Downtown Project, a multi-year infrastructure that seeks to improve the overall flow and safety of car, bike and pedestrian travel in the downtown area. Its latest phase largely focused on ADA access and safety improvements, primarily in the form of 17 new curb ramps and “bulb outs” that seek to narrow the road and shorten the distance pedestrians have to cover to cross the street.
City officials are also doing a one-month test-run of reconfiguring downtown traffic patterns at two key intersections – Throckmorton/Miller/Bernard & Sunnyside/Miller – to evaluate their potential for improving safety. The demonstration is in place now and runs through October 22, with temporary signs and pavement markings in place to guide motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists.

the closed off exit from the Peets street and the One way on Bernard are very difficult – you now have to back up to get out of the Peets area then go up Bernard to the next block to get back to Throck..- please make Bernard 2-way again too m any one-way streets…
I don’t feel anything has been simplified or improved. If anything these new patterns have complicated traffic flow. It was all fine the way it was.
