On the heels of the installation of new wayfinding signs at the roundabout of the Mill Valley-Sausalito Multiuse Path toward “Miller Ave., Downtown Shops & Restaurants” (at left), the Mill Valley Chamber has installed a wayfinding sign further south on, directing residents and travelers to “Tam Junction Shops & Restaurants.”

The wayfinding signs continue the Chamber’s efforts to celebrate Mill Valley’s increasingly bike- and pedestrian friendly infrastructure, both due to the completion of the City of Mill Valley‘s 18-month, $18 million Miller Avenue Streetscape Project, as well as the County of Marin’s efforts to build bike lanes in and around Shoreline Hwy. in Tam Junction.

The signs were installed with the gracious support and coordination from the folks at Marin County Parks and the City of Mill Valley.


The Chamber chose the location of the Tam Junction based on the proximity to the short, boardwalk-style path that traverses Coyote Creek past the Holiday Inn Express and Dipsea Cafe, hoping to send residents and visitors to the ever-going array of shops, restaurants and local businesses in the area.

​Since its debut in 1981, it has become one of the most popular paths in the entire Bay Area, with more than a half-million people using it between March and November each year, according to annual WalkBikeMarin Path Counts.

The new signs are in addition to a wayfinding sign installed earlier this year, with gracious support and coordination by the City of Mill Valley, that further connects the downtown to the Miller corridor. That sign, pictured at right, is located at Throckmorton Ave. and Bernard Street – outside Vasco restaurant.
