Construction is underway on the connector roads that link Newport Boulevard with Coast Highway, known as the Arches Interchange. The work will be completed over the next 18 months. During the project, the ramp connecting the southeast lanes of Coast Highway to southbound Newport Boulevard will be closed. Traffic will be detoured onto Balboa Boulevard. In addition to repairing the interchange ramps, the bridge over the Newport Channel will be rebuilt.

I'm saddened that two people had to die for the issue of bicycle safety to come to light (Sept. 14). But it's not restricted to the Pacific Coast Highway. As a rider who's commuted regularly between Hollywood and Santa Monica for eight years, I can tell you there is no safe road for bicyclists given the numerous construction sites throughout Los Angeles. L.A. should be a model city for bicycle commuting: We have perfect weather, wide boulevards and lots of land, but it's more dangerous here for bicyclists than in most East Coast cities.

On weekday mornings and on beach days, a torrent of traffic from the San Fernando Valley pours through the Malibu canyons, emptying onto Pacific Coast Highway. At such times, the locals speak wistfully of tollbooths. They long for a guard and a gate, strategically placed at each through-road intersection with PCH to discourage, or even staunch, the flow of cars.

Newport Coast Drive is open, beckoning to all who will to come fly the hills and vales of formerly proscribed lands from the ancient and venerable PCH to MacArthur Boulevard: one non-place to another. But, stay awhile! The mind and hand of man have not been hesitant, have not been quiescent, but have arisen, nay, have arched to meet an unasked-for challenge which will grant definition and meaning and, therefore, a certain grace, to this bastard descendant of the Roman Way. I draw your attention please to the pair of arches, symmetrically angled on the PCH egress/access.

The winter rainstorms are here, and once again Pacific Coast Highway was closed from Golden West Street to Warner Avenue due to flooding. It's a chronic problem that happens several times each rainy season and it will get enormous if the Bolsa Chica area is developed. Thousands more cars will be added to the traffic pattern. It has been estimated that the proposed Koll Real Estate Group development would add 20,000 car trips a day to the area. What are the mitigations? Making PCH a six-lane highway will not solve the flooding problem.
