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.

Formed in 2005, the Peninsula Cold Case Project (PCCP) is a collaboration between local, state and federal law enforcement partners, the Department of Justice, and the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office. The mission of the PCCP is to close unsolved homicides and this regional investigative effort has resulted in a number of homicide case closures including the 1998 abduction and homicide of 13-year-old Christina Williams. Recently PCCP members were honored by the California Peace Officers’ Association with the 2017 Outstanding Cold Case award for their work on the Christina Williams case which resulted in the filing of criminal charges against her killer.
