COMMUNITY NEWS / COVERING ORANGE COUNTY'S 33 CITIES

Huntington Beach

November 22, 2000|Tariq Malik, (714) 965-7172, Ext. 13

The City Council has approved a list of 29 intersections throughout Huntington Beach in need of street lights for fiscal 2001.

Council members voted 6-0, with Councilman Tom Harman absent, to approve the list, which determines the number and priority of traffic lights needed to keep motorists at safe speeds.

City traffic officials said their annual budget typically has enough money to install just three new stoplights, which can cost as much as $125,000 each. Topping the list is Garfield Avenue at Delaware street, second is Adams Avenue and Lake Street, and third is Heil Avenue and Graham Street.

There is also usually about $35,000 reserved for minor signal work that could cover a three-way stoplight at Seapoint Avenue and Doral Drive. Councilwoman Pam Julien, with the support of other council members, opted to place the intersection on the priority list after a young bicyclist was struck by a speeding car there during the summer.
