After years of controversy, Orange County officials on Friday released 11 design alternatives for improving Laguna Canyon Road, two of which will be the focus of a public workshop this morning.
The alternatives, which range from minor safety enhancements to rerouting a major section of the heavily traveled highway, were developed by the Laguna Canyon Road Consensus Committee.
A report with diagrams describing the proposed changes will be presented at the workshop, followed by a question-and-answer period, said Kari Rigoni, senior planner with the county's Environmental Management Agency.
The public workshop will be held from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at City Hall, 505 Forest Ave.
Meeting mostly behind closed doors since August, 1992, the 19-member committee consisted of city and county officials and representatives from business and civic groups.
