A 300-foot section of Alicia Parkway that collapsed during recent rainstorms will be closed indefinitely, city officials said. As the City Council tonight looks at spending $133,000 for measures to keep the slope from slipping further, Public Works Director Ken Montgomery said the eastbound lane could be closed for years. The damaged road is near the bottom of a hill near where Alicia Parkway dead-ends into Crown Valley Parkway.

Permanent repairs finally have begun on a 200-foot section of Alicia Parkway that collapsed nearly two years ago during El Nino rains. Two of Alicia Parkway's three lanes will be closed from Crown Valley Parkway to Ivy Glenn Drive during the construction, which is expected to be finished in June, said Nick Renn, city engineer. City officials waited on federal funding approval before they jumped into approximately $400,000 to 500,000 worth of construction, Renn said.

City officials decided Tuesday to put the Metrolink commuter rail station project out to bid for a second time, in the hopes of garnering bids closer to the city's budget. The previous attempt yielded only two bids, the lowest almost $2 million more than the city's $2.5-million budget and the other $4 million above what the city could pay. If the Orange County Transportation Authority's board of directors decides Monday to use an available $2.

Taking a hard look at the area's economy, a new study says that the city's financial potential is still a few years away from being fully realized. The study covered a major growth area in the city: a long strip of land running alongside Interstate 5. Although great commercial opportunities exist with the freeway so close, access to the land is a problem because railroad tracks run parallel to the interstate.

First, Mission Viejo wanted it. Then, Laguna Niguel got interested. And now, Laguna Hills is trying to decide whether to join in. There's room for only one more commuter rail station in South County, and as traffic congestion gets worse on Interstate 5, city officials are trying to decide which community will get the station and who will pay for it. "It doesn't take much to realize that this is a badly needed facility and that time is of the essence," said Mission Viejo Mayor Robert D. Breton.

A public hearing will be held Tuesday on a proposed commuter rail station in Mission Viejo or Laguna Niguel. The City Council will ask residents for opinions on the best location for a Metrolink commuter rail station, which would connect stations in Orange and Los Angeles counties and have a terminus at Union Station in Los Angeles. Three sites are under consideration, with two in Mission Viejo between Cabot Road and the San Diego Freeway near Oso Parkway.

Officials agreed Wednesday to pay a store $5.8 million for the right to build part of the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor directly over the store and its parking lot, officials said. Costco, a discount department store that is part of a Seattle-based chain, agreed to sell the right-of-way for its Cabot Road store just west of Interstate 5. That right of way will provide an alternative for linking the corridor with the freeway.

Concerned about two recent accidents at the intersection, residents pushed for installation of a traffic light.
