Want to take a trip in a time capsule? Want to get on an Orange County highway and be able to hear yourself think? Or look at pleasing scenery without the fear of being tailgated, rear-ended, sideswiped, broadsided or whatever else your fellow motorists can think of? Think it's impossible? Not so. Merely get on the San Joaquin Hills tollway, that billion-dollar monument to traffic relief (and future development), and forget about your cars and woes.

THANKS for your article and pictures on U.S. 50 ["400 Miles of Blissful Nothingness," Drives, July 16]. I've done it several times by myself and with my wife. Did you see the "shoe tree," where everyone has thrown their old shoes? I also love the messages spelled out with stones on the roadside. Very cool. JEREMY VAN HOY Colorado Springs, Colo.

Police arrested a women's shelter worker on suspicion of murder Monday after she dumped her hours-old baby on the side of the road, authorities said. Miriam Guerrero, 22, led Los Angeles Police Department detectives to Agua Dulce Canyon Road near the Antelope Valley Freeway, where they found a box, said LAPD Officer Stinson Brown. The Los Angeles County coroner's office later confirmed the box contained a newborn girl who apparently suffocated.

Roadway Corp. said a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by a major rival may help Roadway's sales jump 30% this quarter. Roadway, the second-largest U.S. trucking company, expects an influx of orders from Consolidated Freightways Corp. customers to increase sales in its fourth quarter from the $867.5 million it posted in the period last year. Its third quarter ended too soon for Roadway to benefit from Consolidated's Sept. 3 bankruptcy filing, a Roadway spokesman said.

A man threatening to commit suicide by leaping off a Hollywood Freeway bridge in downtown Los Angeles forced the closure of the roadway early Tuesday until officers made him jump into an air bag, authorities said. Clarence Hunter, 54, who had also threatened to set himself on fire, was not hurt in the fall and was arrested after police discovered that he was wanted on a $2,500 battery warrant, Los Angeles Police Sgt. Bill McDaniel said.

The City Council this week agreed to spend $60,000 for an access road leading to a youth shelter under construction in Huntington Central Park. The two-lane road will lead from the Huntington Central Library parking lot up a hill to the historic Brooks House, which is being refurbished and expanded to house the Huntington Youth Shelter. The money for the road was originally earmarked in a 1989-90 federal block grant.

A Santa with sunglasses and a Christmas tree created by green handprints of schoolchildren can be found on panels in the median of Huntington Drive, a tradition that was revived this year after a six-year hiatus. The nine panels, installed earlier this month between El Sereno Avenue and Van Horn Street, were decorated by students from elementary and junior high schools in response to a contest sponsored by the El Sereno Coordinating Council.

A two-year, $16-million overhaul of the Parkway Calabasas interchange of the Ventura Freeway is under way. The project, funded by levies on three developers and administered by the state Department of Transportation and Los Angeles County, is intended to offset a dramatic increase in traffic expected from housing and commercial developments approved for the area.
