Pelican Hill Road and the San Joaquin Hill Road connection will divert thousands of cars around Corona del Mar. These roads would be a boon to Corona del Mar, and let no one tell you differently. This north-south artery was available five years ago until a similar referendum stopped the completion of Newport Center-Fashion Island. Traffic conditions have worsened year by year not because the Irvine Co. completed Newport Center but because of development occurring outside Newport Beach and there is no route available other than Pacific Coast Highway and MacArthur Boulevard.
If citizens are tired of through traffic on residential streets and businesses are tired of losing customers and the threat of parking being removed, they will surely support the plan so we can have this urgently needed bypass around Corona del Mar. We all stand to benefit too much to let this opportunity go by.
