Transportation Sales Tax Dollars at Work with Miller Avenue Major Roadway Improvements!
In November 2017, the City of Mill Valley celebrated the completion of their multi-year effort to bring major streetscape improvements to Miller Avenue. The project funding included nearly $11 million from Marin’s Transportation Sales Tax, combined with multiple other funding sources to complete the $18 million improvement project. The Miller Avenue Streetscape Project included critical improvements on 1.8 miles of Miller Ave from Almonte Boulevard to Sunnyside Avenue.
Improvements covered elements both above and below ground – from sewers to streetlights. Bike and pedestrian enhancements included continuous buffered bike lanes, flashing pedestrian crossings at the Evergreen and Reed and Creek/Valley Circle intersections, wide sidewalks and curb extensions, a new boardwalk connecting Downtown and the Presidio Avenue neighborhood, and a new bridge connecting to the Multi-Use Pathway. Environmental upgrades involved drainage improvements, landscaping and rain gardens. Infrastructure improvements included new street realignment, ADA improvements, new curbs, gutters and sidewalks, new paving and re-striping, sewer repair, and utility upgrades. New design elements incorporated new lighting, signage, new benches, bike racks and trash cans.
Congratulations to Mill Valley and Marin County on completion of this Major Roadway Project!
