Twyla Mowery has waited 18 months for the extension of Stonehill Drive to be completed. Mowery, a secretary employed by the city of Dana Point, has been forced to use a zigzag commute along crowded surface streets to her Mission Viejo home. But with the opening of the roadway this morning, she and hundreds of other northbound commuters from the Dana Point area will be able to shortcut across San Juan Creek right to Interstate 5. "It's wonderful," Mowery said Thursday.

City officials support Riverside County's plans for another freeway linked to Orange County but are adamantly opposed to a possible freeway running from San Juan Capistrano to Lake Elsinore near Ortega Highway. The local reaction comes after a meeting Monday between Riverside County and Orange County transportation authorities proposing three potential routes to link the Corona Freeway in Riverside County to Interstate 5 or the Foothill Transportation Corridor.

The City Council approved a parking lot and traffic signs in the Los Rios Historic District to mitigate traffic problems. The 100-space lot will be accompanied by traffic signs directing motorists to park there, not on Los Rios Street. City officials will now select a site to build the parking lot. No construction date has been set. A 1.5-acre park will also be constructed at the corner of Ramos Street and Paseo Adelanto.

City officials want to know how traffic will be affected before they approve a general plan amendment that would allow a development east of Interstate 5. Council members this week postponed action on the proposal from Santa Ana-based developer San Juan Meadows until they can see a traffic impact report. The developer seeks to build 275 single-family homes and 165 senior housing units in a project that would include nearly 73 acres of open space and a 2-acre public area.

The city is sponsoring a public workshop tonight for residents to discuss the proposed Ortega Highway mitigation program, which tries to lessen traffic problems on the major roadway. The purpose of the workshop, which starts at 7 p.m. in City Council chambers, is to give residents and businesses an opportunity to help develop the program.

Rejecting a recommendation of the city staff, the City Council this week voted to install permanent all-way stop signs at two intersections on San Juan Creek Road. The action came after citizens urged the council to keep the temporary signs that had been installed at Avenida La Mancha and Calle Cartagena, which is adjacent to Harold Ambuehl Elementary School. Last November, the council approved the temporary installations after receiving requests from citizens concerned about safety.

The Planning Commission has approved the reconstruction of a section of historic Los Rios Street, but the money for the work is not yet available. The commission's action this week calls for about $186,000 worth of work to reconstruct 1,800 feet of Los Rios Street and install new drains, according to city engineering officials. Commissioners also approved closing a narrow L-shaped intersection between Mission and Los Rios streets to traffic.

The City Council disappointed a packed audience at City Hall by endorsing a plan to move Rancho Viejo Road east and widen it to four lanes, affecting several landowners and a Montessori school. After four hours of debate, the council voted 3 to 1 Tuesday night to support the project, which is needed for the Interstate 5 interchange and the future $850-million San Joaquin Hills tollway. Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer was absent. The dissenting vote came from Councilman Jeff Vasquez.

The City Council this week decided not to challenge the planned San Joaquin Hills tollway in exchange for about $2.5 million in roadway and other improvements the project builder has agreed to make. Recently, the Orange County Transportation Corridor Agencies, the umbrella organization for two tollway projects in the county, told city officials it will condemn a section of Rancho Viejo Road in the city that must be moved east to make way for the corridor.
