The City of Mill Valley Department of Public Works is working closely with PG&E on a pipeline replacement project in the Downtown area of Mill Valley. The purpose of this project is to enhance gas service to PG&E customers by replacing the gas lines with modern piping, creating a safer and more reliable natural gas system.
Construction began the week of March 17 and will continue through July 2014. Please note that all construction schedules are subject to change due to weather restrictions and other unforeseen delays.
Here is the latest news on the downtown pipeline replacement project:
What happened last week: PG&E crews installed the gas main on Corte Madera Avenue.
What is happening this week: Gas main installation continues at the intersection of Gardner Street and Corte Madera Avenue and at the corner of Gardner Street and West Blithedale Avenue. Crews will conduct pavement restoration and some trenching on Throckmorton Avenue later this week.
What to expect in the next few weeks: Crews will install the gas main on Throckmorton Avenue and conduct pavement restoration on Corte Madera Avenue. Crews will also finish the remaining pavement restoration work on West Blithedale and Gardner Street.
The City recommends that motorists:
- Add time to your trip and plan ahead.
- Use the recommended detours during construction.
PG&E and City staff are making every effort to mitigate traffic impacts during construction in the downtown area and are working with the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce to notify local businesses and residents of the planned work. The City is also working closely with PG&E to ensure that the construction work will not affect emergency vehicle access or response times.
