Old-timers call it "the Grand Canyon of Orange County." Nestled in the Chino Hills of far northeastern Orange County, the walls of Soquel Canyon plunge as much as 1,000 feet. Pristine woodlands of oak and walnut line the canyon bottom, providing a sanctuary for mule deer, mountain lion and bobcat. Accessible only by foot, the canyon is virtually unknown, even to many nearby residents.

Construction of two expressways linking San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange counties should help siphon commute-hour congestion from the Pomona and Orange freeways, a consultant's report shows. The expressways would be 10- and 12-mile extensions of Tonner Canyon Road and Soquel Canyon Road, respectively. Aside from helping to ease traffic on the two freeways, the new strips should help relieve surface streets that freeway motorists frequently use as detours.

After two days of searching, sheriff's deputies on Monday found the decomposing body of a man in a remote area about half a mile east of Carbon Canyon Road. The body, fully clothed and on a straw mat, was sighted by two hikers Sunday evening in Soquel Canyon, said Sheriff's Lt. Dick Olson. Unable to traverse the area because of the recent rains, deputies returned by helicopter with one hiker on Sunday but the search was abandoned because of darkness. The body was found at 2:30 p.m.

Peak-hour traffic congestion through Diamond Bar would be alleviated by the construction of two expressways linking San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange counties, a consultant's report shows. The expressways would be 10- and 12-mile extensions of Tonner Canyon Road and Soquel Canyon Road, respectively. They would be expected to siphon rush-hour congestion from the Pomona (60) and Orange (57) freeways, as well as from surface streets that freeway motorists frequently use as detours.

Allowing private companies to build and finance toll roads in California has become a new option in legislative negotiations over a 10-year plan for easing congestion in the state's highway system, possibly including two tollway projects aimed at relieving congestion on two Orange County freeways. Assemblyman Richard Katz (D-Sylmar) said that, as a concession to Republicans, Democratic negotiators are considering offering their support for a measure by Assemblyman William P. Baker (R-Danville)

In a bid to obtain money for Orange County projects, state and local transportation officials gathered Thursday in Brea to tell potential investors and builders from as far away as New York, France and Japan about opportunities to build private toll roads for profit. It was the first such meeting in the state where companies could ask questions about the new state toll road program, as well as examine which Orange County projects may be suitable for private investment.

The fire, the second to burn through the environmentally sensitive area in less than three weeks, charred more than 6,500 acres of state parkland, fire officials said.
