Corona Del Mar Freeway (73) Closures

Just a reminder... the Corona Del Mar Freeway - State Route 73 - will experience some significant closures over the upcoming weekend.  I wrote about it earlier and included links to the CalTrans press release and maps of possible alternate routes during this time HERE.

An interesting sidebar - both Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer and appointed councilman Steve Mensinger were all over the media complaining about these closures.  Then, Tuesday evening during the council meeting, Righeimer backpeddled like he was being chased like a bear.  I guess he realized that California has plenty of problems with runaway business and film production.  It's our understanding that CalTrans will get about $300,000 for this inconvenience of the driving public.

So, go to my previous entry and click on the link I provided to see the maps.  Consider yourselves warned.  It looks like a great weekend to just hunker down or head on down to the beach.

Is the City of Costa Mesa receiving ANY money from this closure? I'be heard that the City will be providing some services, and maybe that's why Riggy and Mensy hushed up.

Ironic that the weather may include some drizzle, which may make all that filming problematic.

Maybe Mensinger and Riggy and Colin and Gary can host one of their coffees there, or angle for a bit part. They can replace the monkey in the last film.

The City is being compensated for this, don't think otherwise. CEO Hatch knew about this a long time ago and has made arraignments for this to happen. Mr. Righeimer and Mr. Mensinger can whine about it all they like but it's not up to them.
