A freeway bridge and several miles of carpool lanes are set to open today on two heavily traveled Orange County freeways. Motorists on the Riverside and Orange freeways in Anaheim will be able to use a new bridge connecting the two. The span and 11.5 miles of new carpool lanes should reduce traffic congestion and increase by 65,000 the number of vehicles that the Riverside Freeway can accommodate daily, a Caltrans spokeswoman said.

The opening of a Metrolink commuter rail station in northeast Anaheim this week is being praised by officials as a boost to economic growth and a step toward reducing freeway congestion and air pollution. "The station is not only a transportation link for the city, it's also a key component of an economic development strategy we have for that area," said Elisa Stipkovich, director of the Anaheim Redevelopment Agency.

The City Council on Tuesday will review a plan for more than $54 million in capital improvements over the next seven years. Many of the proposals would be in conjunction with the widening of the Santa Ana Freeway. Among roadways scheduled for improvements are Harbor and State College boulevards, Ball Road, Katella and La Palma avenues, and Euclid Street. Construction on the freeway itself is set to begin in December in Anaheim and continue into 2000.

Riding the rails, as opposed to battling the freeways, soon will become an option for some employees in northeast Anaheim. When the MetroLink train station opens on Aug. 5 in the Anaheim Canyon Business Center, an estimated 160 commuters--mainly from the Inland Empire--are expected to begin riding the trains on weekdays, according to Diana Kotler, transportation programs planner for Anaheim.

The formation of a transportation management association for the Anaheim Canyon Business Center will be among the items discussed Tuesday by the City Council. The association, a partnership between public and private agencies, would seek to reduce traffic congestion and improve access to businesses in the area. Funding would be provided by a $100,000 grant from the Orange County Transportation Authority. This would be the second transportation management association formed in Anaheim.

Motorists who travel a nearly one-mile stretch of Anaheim Boulevard between State College Boulevard and Katella Avenue that parallels the Santa Ana Freeway will have to find another route beginning next week. That section of road will close permanently as part of the Santa Ana Freeway widening project. Detour signs will assist motorists to State College and Katella. The closure will allow for the addition of car-pool lanes on the freeway.

After a two-day lobbying effort aimed at obtaining more funds for a proposed regional transportation system, Anaheim officials went home with encouragement but no guarantees. Anaheim Mayor Fred Hunter said the officials had hoped to secure $20 million to move the proposed system from the planning to construction stage. Last year, the county was awarded $15 million out of a $151-billion federal transportation bill but needs $85 million over the next six years for subsequent phases.

It's a scene that has been repeated in many neighborhoods: A once-slow and quiet residential street is gradually transformed into a shortcut for motorists trying to avoid the congestion packing nearby main routes. But it's a development that residents of Glenview Avenue and Holbrook Street here have fought for more than two years, with hopes of keeping their housing tract peaceful and safe. Last week, their persistence finally paid off.
