A 100-ton crane being used in the construction of the San Joaquin Hills tollway tipped over and hit two other cranes Friday afternoon near Laguna Canyon Road, officials said. No one was injured by the falling crane, which was lifting a steel column when it tipped over, collided with the other cranes and landed on its side, Transportation Corridor Agencies officials said.

Under pressure to speed up work on the jammed and construction-torn Costa Mesa Freeway, Caltrans officials said today's opening of a heavily traveled offramp and over-crossing should serve as proof the $118-million widening job is approaching an end. The effort to widen the highway between the Riverside and Garden Grove freeways started in 1999, and has left motorists and some freeway-close merchants fuming about the congestion, debris and detours.

An investigator for the Orange County coroner's office confirmed Wednesday that a portion of human skull found this week at the site of the MacArthur Boulevard widening is that of an ancient Native American. "We only have the very top of the head," said Judy Suchey, a forensic anthropologist who examined the skull portion for the coroner's office. "It was a young adult, and that's all we can say." Construction work at the site, a 100-square-foot stretch of the 1.

The County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday agreed to pay Irvine-based LSA Associates $33,000 to oversee the creation of the three-acre habitat at Crystal Cove State Park, where a few nests have appeared in the past few months.

A federal historic preservation agency is questioning whether Orange County toll-road builders conducted enough research before demolishing a cave that some believe was an ancient Native American observatory. The cave near Orange was demolished early last month by the Transportation Corridor Agencies, despite activists' claims that it was a significant site once used to mark the winter solstice.

The 10-month-old Jamboree Road widening project is three months behind schedule, in part because of a strike by heavy-equipment operators, city officials said this week. Installation of curbs and gutters for the $7-million project was delayed by heavy winter rains. That part of the job was completed two weeks ago, city engineers said, but the end of the project is still at least another month away.

In reference to Don Harvey's Orange County Voices article Feb. 15, "He's Peddling a 1% Solution to Congestion," I would like to add my "two wheels' worth." I am one of the 1% of commuters who regularly relies on pedal power to get me to my place of employment. I commute approximately 10 miles each way from my home in Brea to a middle school in Diamond Bar, three to four days a week. My route is Brea Canyon Road, which, arguably, is one of the least conducive roadways to cycling in Orange County.

In a decision that may have repercussions on toll-road construction in Orange County, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that the government violated the Endangered Species Act by failing to designate a protected area for the songbird known as the California gnatcatcher. By a 2-1 vote, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco overturned a 1995 decision by federal Judge Linda H. McLaughlin in Santa Ana in favor of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
