Despite the qualms of some business owners, city workers will soon be posting signs in the Briardale Avenue neighborhood to discourage fast-moving traffic from using residential streets. The diversion, approved by the City Council for a six-month trial, was a compromise measure. The plan is meant to satisfy residents who were upset in April when the city agreed to let a senior citizens facility be built on nearby Taft Avenue.

The Warner Avenue bridge over the San Diego Freeway got fresh stripes of paint this week to mark four new lanes, paving the way for a more efficient road system, traffic engineer Mark Lewis said. The 10-year, $3.3-million project began in 1989 when traffic began to bottleneck at the bridge. "It took six lanes of traffic, squeezed them into four over the bridge and then fed into six lanes on the other side," Lewis said.

Parents say that an intersection where a 14-year-old boy was killed seven years ago is still dangerous and in need of a crossing guard. A recent accident at Michelson Drive and Yale Avenue near two Irvine schools has motivated parents to ask city officials again for a crossing guard. Melissa Horn, a student at Rancho San Joaquin Middle School, was struck by a van Oct. 23 while riding her bicycle through a crosswalk at the intersection on her way to school. She suffered a concussion and bruises.

The screeches and bangs of cars colliding at the intersection of Magnolia Street and Indianapolis Avenue have been all too frequent for Father Gus Krumm. Last week alone, there were three car accidents in two days at the intersection near Sts. Simon & Jude Catholic Church. Two years ago, a priest from another local church was killed near the intersection as he pulled into Sts. Simon & Jude's parking lot.

Saying that a proposed tollway in eastern Orange County is an "elephant that turns out to be a giraffe," a Superior Court judge Friday indicated he might find the environmental review for the road inadequate. Judge James L. Smith said he would decide by Tuesday the fate of the 23-mile, $700-million Eastern tollway's environmental review, which has been challenged by environmentalists and the cities of Santa Ana and Laguna Beach.
