The City of Mill Valley‘s 18-month, $18 million Miller Avenue Streetscape Project was a beast of a project, a once-in-generation re-imagining of approximately two miles of one of Mill Valley’s two main arteries and far and away the biggest road improvement project the City had undertaken in decades. It was a long slog for City staff and its contractors, a major impact for businesses along the corridor and an inconvenience for the community.
But in the end, Miller Avenue is a massively more vibrant street, much safer for all of its users with continuous bike lanes, improved sidewalks, enhanced crosswalks, and new pavement, storm drains, sewer pipes and much more – all while retaining and even enhancing Miller Avenue’s distinct character.
Two years after its completion, Miller Avenue is teeming with multi-modal users, from families riding bicycles up and down the street – with regular stops at Tam Bikes – to pedestrians from adjacent neighborhoods walking to dinner at places like Super Duper Burger and Tamalpie. Sponsored by Redwood Credit Union, this series will be highlighting more businesses, nonprofits and arts organizations throughout 2020 and beyond!
