A portion of Edwards Street that was damaged by recent rainstorms will be closed two days next week for repairs. About $10,000 in work has been approved to fill potholes and repair other damage between Talbert and Ellis avenues, city officials said. The PLC Land Co., which recently built about 2,600 homes in the Seacliff area, will pay for the work. The Newport Beach-based company plans more permanent work on the roadway in May, including widening lanes.

Officials are taking steps to prevent children from using a railroad bridge across the Santa Ana Freeway as a short-cut to and from school. The children have been using the bridge--a dangerous and illegal route--since the freeway construction project recently closed the Santa Ana Street overpass. To prevent any injuries, a security guard will monitor the bridge 24 hours a day, beginning Monday, to keep pedestrians and bicyclists away, Caltrans officials said.

Motorists waiting to use Loma Street, which has been closed for the past two months, will have to continue using alternate routes for another month. Utility companies have been making underground gas, water, telephone and electricity improvements on Loma Street, from Crest De Ville to Mesa Drive. Work crews, however, need more time to complete several projects, including the removal of a gas main, replacement of a storm drain system and installation of new main valves for water service.

A gas line leak caused a small fire at a Southern California Gas Co. regulator valve Saturday morning, forcing police to close part of Harbor Boulevard and Fair Drive for four hours. At one point, the gas leak sent bursts of "shooting flames in the air," said Costa Mesa Police Sgt. Allen Huggins. No injuries were reported, and the fire caused no damage, police and gas company officials said. The Costa Mesa Fire Department called the utility shortly before 7:30 a.m.
