Upcoming East Blithedale Avenue Work
Pacific Gas & Electric will relocate the main gas line from Elm Avenue (east) to East Drive starting in January 2023. This work will enable work crews to pave East Blithedale Avenue and Sycamore Avenue in the spring of 2023. Flaggers will conduct alternating one-way traffic control during this work.
East Blithedale Avenue Open for Through Traffic
East Blithedale Avenue is now open to through traffic between Camino Alto and Downtown Mill Valley. Motorists may experience localized closures or flagged one-way traffic control until May 2023.We encourage motorists to use Miller Avenue to access Downtown Mill Valley.
Crews continue working on East Blithedale Avenue between Sunnyside Avenue and Amicita Avenue to allow for ongoing sanitary sewer and concrete work, which involves replacing curb ramps, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and driveways.
