For about 30 minutes Wednesday morning, many Corona del Mar residents were focused on Upper Buck Gully, watching as a helicopter picked up and moved into place four metal bridges that are part of a new trail project's final components. The bridges were fabricated offsite and delivered Monday to a lookout parking lot of Canyon Watch Park on San Joaquin Hills Road. About 9 a.m., the helicopter flew in to begin the installation process. In Harbor View Hills South, Spyglass and other neighborhoods, residents stood in their backyards, watching the helicopter fly back and forth to set the bridges on waiting footings that were built late last year.

Imagine driving down MacArthur Boulevard toward Coast Highway and seeing a quaint row of outdoor cafes with fountains and landscaping — and not a snarl of traffic as three lanes squeeze to two on the way into town. "This would be a beautiful entrance," said Bernie Svalstad, chairman of the Corona del Mar Business Improvement District advisory board. "This is one of the main entrances to Newport Beach as well as to Corona del Mar. This could have a big impact. " Plans for "Restaurant Row" have been under consideration for years as part of the BID's ongoing beautification and vision plan for Corona del Mar, which dates back to 1999 and was revised in 2004.
