Motorists planning to travel on Sand Canyon Avenue, just south of the Santa Ana (5) Freeway in Irvine, will want to pick an alternate route this week. There will be a construction-related road closure between Oak Canyon and Laguna Canyon roads. The closure, which was slated to start at 8 p.m. Friday, is in effect until 5 a.m. Aug. 6 and will require travelers to detour around the area via Jeffrey Road and Irvine Center Drive. The closure is part of the city of Irvine's long-term, $56-million Sand Canyon Undercrossing project, a grade separation of the street and train routes giving vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists safer and more efficient travel under the railroad tracks, according to the city's website.

Construction on the Corona del Mar High School pool parking lot has begun with hopes that traffic will flow more smoothly during drop-off and pick-up when school begins in September. Last fall, members of the school's PTA complained about congestion in the lot and demanded changes. "The bus drop-off has been moved to a new dedicated space off Eastbluff [Drive] to keep the buses entirely out of the north lot," according to an email written from Deputy Supt. Paul Reed. "That alone, plus the expanded stacking space in the lot itself, should improve traffic around CdM in the crazy morning period.

The state Supreme Court on Monday ruled that a charter city does not have to pay state-mandated wages for construction and other projects funded entirely by cities. The decision was closely watched in Costa Mesa, where a proposed city charter would not require the city to pay so-called "prevailing wages," formulas based on rates set by labor and other factors, when it seeks bid for work. That element of the proposed charter is favored by the City Council's conservative majority, but opposed by organized labor.

Work has begun on the Upper Buck Gully trail project, with crews clearing the trails on the looped path that begins at Fifth and Poppy avenues. City officials toured the site Thursday, where workers are preparing to install footings for four bridges currently under construction, said City Manager Dave Kiff.
