Acting on complaints from residents, sheriff's deputies recently cracked down on speeders, issuing 274 tickets in seven weeks--five times the usual number for a similar time period, officials said. "We're trying to slow them down," City Manager Fred Maley said of the stepped-up effort, which ended in late June. In 201 of the citations, drivers exceeded the posted speed limit by 10 mph to 15 mph.

A long-running dispute with Villa Park over a left-turn lane into a popular shopping center has finally been resolved. The Orange City Council this week adopted a compromise: to build a left-turn-only lane on Santiago Boulevard for drivers turning into Villa Park Town Center after entering Santiago from Brookside Avenue, which is in Orange. The problem is that Brookside does not align with the main entrance to the shopping center.

Upset over how long it is taking utility and construction companies to finish repairing Loma Street, the City Council has delivered an ultimatum: Get the work done by Sept. 17. Residents, eager to use the street again, complained that in the preceding two months utility workers had spent only about two hours one morning making repairs. The council last week gave E.L. Yeager Construction Co., which is contracted with Southern California Edison, until Sept.

Commuters who sit in traffic every day on Villa Park Road soon may find the trip is easier. Villa Park officials plan to award a contract in November for a $1.2-million widening of the road into four and eventually six lanes, City Engineer Jeanette Peck said. Construction is expected to begin in January. The project will also include a median and permanent lights to replace blinking red lights where Villa Park intersects Center Drive and Lemon Street.

Changes in speed limits on Meats and Serrano avenues have been given preliminary approval by the City Council. The revisions came after the city had a professional speed-zone engineering and traffic survey conducted. State law requires cities to have periodic updates of such traffic studies to determine if posted speeds are legally reasonable.

Police enforcement will increase under a plan approved by the City Council last week to curb speeding on Francisco and Vida drives. For more than 20 years, homeowners on the curvy streets have complained about speeding and reckless driving. Homeowners from the surrounding area objected to a proposed street closure and restrictions on turns, saying such measures would drive more traffic onto their streets.

Construction now underway on a 1.6-mile road that will offer an alternative to the Riverside-Costa Mesa freeway interchange marks the end of a long battle by residents of the hillside neighborhoods affected. The residents, who formed Residents Opposed to Arterial Roads, "did everything we could do," said Mary Wright, an organizer who protested the construction at numerous Orange City Council public hearings. Her Villa Park home faces the project site.
