10/04/2018: Resurfacing of Major Streets Happening Now, Thanks to Measure P

Measure P funded road resurfacing work is happening on major streets including Del Monte Avenue, Pacific Street, Camino Aguajito and Camino El Estero. Locals are encouraged to avoid those streets and instead travel across town via Franklin or Pearl, Munras to Abrego, or Figueroa or Sloat during this work. Crews will do their best to minimize traffic impacts by performing some of the work at night and by avoiding peak commute hours as much as possible. Drivers should expect traffic control and use extra caution in construction zones.
