The first phase of the Miller Park District Redesign will begin July 10 with the renovation of Miller Park. With construction lasting for 12 months, the new Miller Park will boast a dynamic pavilion, large green lawn and climbable rock outcropping. 

Originating in the 2013 City Center Plan, the Miller Park District Redesign includes a multi-phase project with renovations to Miller Park, its connection to Miller Plaza via MLK Boulevard, minor improvements to Miller Plaza and an overhaul of Patten Parkway.

The first phase focusing on Miller Park and its connection across MLK Boulevard will begin on Monday, July 10, with the closure and renovation of Miller Park. With an anticipated year construction schedule, MLK Boulevard will remain open until Oct. 15. At that time, one lane of traffic will be open in each direction through March 1 between Market Street and Georgia Avenue with a 30 day full closure at the end of this period. MLK Boulevard will be fully, reopened in April 2018 with Miller Park's anticipated re-opening on July 3, 2018.  

Miller Plaza will be open and accessible throughout this 12-month renovation period and will continue to be a source of programming and public space while Miller Park undergoes renovations.

Interrupting an invited female speaker with displays of yelling and holding up disparaging signs is wrong. The women before me that broke the barriers in male-dominated professions would be embarrassed ... (click for more)
