SR 55 Access Study Workshops

For those of you in the Newport-Mesa concerned about the growing traffic problems along SR 55, the Costa Mesa Freeway, and it's extension along Newport Boulevard, there will be two workshops conducted within our city limits next week.

The first is scheduled for Monday, March 31, 2008, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the Costa Mesa Neighborhood Center, 1845 Park Avenue - adjacent to Lion's Park.

The second will be conducted on Wednesday, April 2, 2008, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the Costa Mesa City Hall, Council Chambers, 77 Fair Drive.

More information can be found HERE, a link provided by the Orange County Transportation Authority.

Additionally, Byron de Arakal, in his column in the Daily Pilot today, provides his view of this issue in his own special way. You can find his commentary HERE.

For those of us who live on the Eastside of Costa Mesa, the management of the traffic on Newport Boulevard from the terminus of the 55 Freeway to Pacific Coast Highway is in a dead heat with the growth of John Wayne Airport as the most important long-range issues directly affecting us. The traffic on Newport Boulevard has an even broader reach, affecting the future plans for the revitalization of the Westside, too.

I encourage any of you seriously interested in this issue to attend one of the workshops and provide your views on this subject.
