CAT Tracking layout for street striping.
Raising of sewer system manholes.
What to expect in the next few weeks:

Mainline street striping along Miller Avenue.
Please Note: There will be parking restrictions,
lane shifts, and short-term limited driveway/sidestreet access to allow for final paving and striping. Please plan ahead and allow extra time when traveling on Miller Ave.
A number of residents have expressed concern that the recently paved roadway on Miller Avenue is being jackhammered. The contractors are raising the manhole covers up to the level of the newly paved roadway. This is standard procedure when paving a street, especially in cases where the street level has risen as significantly as on Miller Avenue.
A Message from Mayor Jessica Sloan on the Parkway One-Lane Pilot Program
Last Monday night (August 14), after carefully weighing public comments and staff suggestions, the City Council voted to implement a 12-month pilot project to make a stretch of Miller between Willow and Millwood, known as the Parkway, a single lane roadway with a buffered bike lane and curbside parking.
Please see below for a list of parking options. Construction may impact some of these areas - please look for signs.
4 Hour Parking - 4 hour parking is available in the Public Parking lot located at 411 Miller Avenue, across the street from Whole Foods.
2 Hour Parking - 2 hour public parking is available on the street when not needed for construction (please look for signs), and is also available in the front section of the Whole Foods parking lot located at 400 Miller Avenue.
Other Parking - Parking will be permitted in the Parkway and Gateway as permitted by the construction schedule. Please look for signs to indicate parking availability in these areas.
NEW Unresticted Parking - Parking is available in the Tam High parking lot at the front (Miller Avenue) side of the school.

Downtown Employee Parking - Parking is available in the lot at 38 Miller Avenue or in the lot behind D'Angelos if you are an employee with an e-stickers and cannot find a place to park downtown.
