A woman waiting for help in her disabled car in the middle of the westbound Riverside Freeway in Yorba Linda was killed Monday when the car was struck by a pickup truck and burst into flames, authorities said. The woman, whose identity was not released, died at the scene. She was talking to her parents on her cell phone when the crash took place shortly before 7:30 a.m. Her car was stuck in traffic lanes with a flat tire near Gypsum Canyon Road, a California Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

That little roadway experiment on 4th Street east of downtown is more important than you might think. The city's first automated reversible street allows the center lane to be used by inbound traffic in the morning rush hour and by the outbound crush in the late afternoon. In other words, commuters get an extra lane when they need it most. This is not a new concept.

Construction work starting Monday will reduce Harbor Boulevard to two lanes in each direction from Garden Grove Boulevard to just south of Chapman Avenue. Work on the $560,000 project is scheduled to continue through late February. Plans call for the removal and reconstruction of failed pavement areas, reinforcing fabrics, asphalt concrete overlay, striping, raised pavements markers and bus pads. Normal working hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.

Dear Street Smart: My question concerns litter and debris removal along the medians of our freeways. Isn't it the responsibility of Caltrans to keep these areas clean or require the contractors to keep them clean during construction? It is particularly dangerous on narrow freeways, with no center grass or dirt medians and only 12 to 18 inches between the fast lane and a concrete divider.

A $13-million project is underway to reduce motorist delays and expand hours of operation at the Border Patrol's much-maligned checkpoint on Interstate 5 south of San Clemente. Besides adding two northbound lanes beginning half a mile south of the checkpoint, the project calls for a new administration office at the site and all-weather protective canopies for Border Patrol agents as they check passing vehicles for illegal immigrants and smuggled drugs.

A pine tree mysteriously toppled across Ventura Boulevard during rush hour Monday, slamming down on a passing car--apparently without seriously injuring the driver--and blocking the boulevard for hours. The evergreen gridlock continued Monday night as city street maintenance workers tried to clear the tree from the San Fernando Valley's busy main street.
