Major construction on widening the streets near Jamboree Road and MacArthur Boulevard in Newport Beach should begin by October, city officials said. Thanks to a $3.65-million payment into Newport Beach city coffers within the next 20 days from Irvine, the face of the Jamboree Road corridor just south of the 73 Freeway will begin to change. The money is part of a settlement between Newport Beach and Irvine. Newport Beach was suing Irvine, claiming its environmental study for its Irvine Business Complex, that includes 15,000 residential units, did not adequately address the affects it would have on local traffic, specifically near Jamboree and MacArthur.

A spokesman for the California Food and Agriculture Department said a Newport Beach neighborhood was mistakenly omitted when a quarantine zone was announced Tuesday in order to combat a weevil infestation. The announcement should have included the area known locally as the Port Streets, department spokesman Steve Lyle said. The correct borders of the quarantine zone are University Avenue at the north to the Corona del Mar (73) Freeway; along the freeway to Bonita Canyon Road and runs along that street until San Miguel Drive.

On Friday, the Daily Pilot reported the death of a female cyclist on Adams Avenue in Huntington Beach ("Bicyclist dies after being struck by car " ). The accident occurred where Adams, a three-lane, 45-mph road, transitions from having a bike lane to no bike lane. On the same front page is a story about the Newport Bay Conservancy having concerns about the safety of Back Bay Drive and suggesting that runners and cyclists be banned from traveling south on the road. Such a ban would force cyclists to ride south on Jamboree Road, which has three lanes of heavy traffic, a 55-mph speed limit and no bike lane.

Sixty years ago, buses carried tens of thousands of Boy Scouts down a little dirt road in Newport Beach to the third national Jamboree - a gathering of troops from across the country. Thursday, about 25 of those Scouts returned to a drastically different landscape. That dirt street had become Jamboree Road, and the land they had camped on turned into a sprawling shopping center - known as Fashion Island - where they gathered around a small monument near Macy's. "Fashion Island was the site of the Jamboree, and the road got its name from that," said Devon Dougherty, chief development officer for the Boy Scouts of America Orange County Council.

"Be kind to your web-footed friends, for a duck may be somebody's mother. " I haven't been able to get that old ditty, sung to the melody of "Stars and Stripes Forever," out of my head. I've been stuck on ducks since driving home along Jamboree Road one day last week and glimpsing a family of them, one adult accompanied by several tiny ducklings, waddling heedlessly along the sidewalk as cars whizzed by on the busy thoroughfare. After I got home I continued to worry about the ducks' dangerous excursion.
