The City of Vista is beginning road improvements to keep the streets safe for drivers and cut back on future repair costs this week.
Crews are working on overlaying asphalt on the roads and, if needed, replacing curb ramps and repairing old curbs, gutters and sidewalks.
On some streets, construction will include digging out and replacing the existing asphalt, grinding and overlaying new asphalt, said city officials. Manholes will be adjusted and inductive-loop traffic detectors will be replaced. All the roads will include restriping.
The City of Vista and its contractors are aiming to minimize noise and traffic impacts from the construction work.
