Background
 

Overview The Miller Avenue “Streetscape” refers to roadway and sidewalk elements located in the public right of way, including sidewalks, bike lanes, travel lanes, curb areas, medians and landscaping. The overall goal of the project is to make Miller Avenue a safe, efficient, and enjoyable street for all users: pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, transit users, business people, shoppers and visitors. Likewise, the Miller Avenue roadway design must balance the needs and functions of the street--as a transportation thoroughfare, a healthy commercial district, respectful neighbor & social gathering place. 

There are five "rooms" within this 1.8 mile project area along Miller Avenue--from Sunnyside to Almonte.  These rooms characterize the look and feel of the area along the street.  Main components of the Streetscape Project include establishing a continuous bike lane from Sunnyside to Almonte, sidewalk repair and widening in some sections, improvements to bus shelters, and improvements to the drainage and pavement of the actual roadway. 

Moving Toward Construction After years of planning, budgeting and engineering, the City of Mill Valley anticipates awarding a construction contract in May 2016 and breaking ground constructing the Miller Avenue Streetscape Project June 2016.  The Streetscape project was originally approved in 2011, building upon the work of several advisory committees and community input, see timeline below.  Since its adoption, the Project has been refined based on detailed engineering design; a detailed design catalogue identifying design for streetlights, cross walk materials and street furnishings; a project-level environmental review; and funding strategy/budgetary review.  Most recently, on March 21, 2016, City Council approved the final plans and authorized the City to advertise construction contracts for the Project. The City anticipates awarding the construction contract in May and breaking ground this summer.

Streetscape Plan.  The original streetscape plan is available under "Project Documents."  Since its adoption, the project has undergone further refinements to address detailed engineering, project costs and funding.  Detailed construction-related drawings are available under "Construction-Related".  See section drawings below for basic depiction of the proposed work by "room".
