Construction is moving forward on a $112-million project to eliminate what has become one of the worst bottlenecks north of Los Angeles: the Oxnard Boulevard and Ventura Freeway interchange in Ventura County. But work on the four-year project that includes widening of the adjoining Santa Clara River bridge cannot move fast enough. Even without the usual accidents or stalled vehicles, traffic along this two-mile stretch of freeway often moves at a crawl.

Dear Street Smart: I frequently drive down Oxnard Boulevard in Oxnard and, compared to other major streets around the county, it is in very bad condition. The bumps and holes all along the road aren't huge, but I don't see them getting repaired, and the heavy load of cars and trucks rolling down the boulevard every day is only making matters worse. It seems like the boulevard could use a good repaving, and maybe a few extra lanes to help traffic move along better.

David Pichon came to work Monday, after a weekend wedding in Ojai, not just to the sounds of congratulations but to the signs of vandalism. Pichon, 27, owns Custom Car Sounds, his second auto-sound store in Ventura County and one of the newest businesses on Oxnard Boulevard. His store was one of 46 residences and businesses hit last weekend by vandals who left a spray-painted trail up and down the boulevard, from Wooley Avenue to Vineyard Road.
