• Street Repairs Still Impact Drivers in Monterey

    Street maintenance and repairs, funded by the Measure P one-cent increase in the sales tax, continue in the City of Monterey. Munras Avenue from Soledad to Alameda, including the entrances to Del Monte Shopping Center and some nearby motels, will be impacted by the work on Thursday, June 18 and Friday, June 19. One lane will remain open in both directions to minimize impacts to businesses, shoppers and residents. Most of the work will occur between 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Project updates, maps, and schedules are available on the web at monterey.org/fixingstreets.

    Slurry seal will be applied to streets in the neighborhoods and will impact some major roads, including Ramona from North Fremont to Euclid, Dela Vina, and a short section of Foam Street between Lighthouse and Cannery Row. A slurry seal is a thin maintenance treatment consisting of a mixture of asphalt emulsions, graded aggregates, mineral fillers, water and other additives.

    Anyone living, working or commuting in an area scheduled for street improvements may be affected in the following ways:

    •             On-street parking may be restricted

    •             Streets may be closed and detours may be in place

    •             Sidewalks at intersections may be closed

    The full schedule of this week’s slurry seal work is available at monterey.org/fixingstreets. All street work is dependent on weather conditions and temperatures, and schedules may shift as a result.

    This initial round of street repairs and maintenance is the start of a four-year program of street improvements funded by Measure P. Streets slated for work that are not listed will be scheduled in the months and years to come. Up-to-date information is available at monterey.org/fixingstreets. Anyone with questions can call 646-3448.
