Huntington Beach officials want to get moving on a plan to alleviate traffic at one of the city's most congested intersections: Brookhurst Street and Adams Avenue. Council members voted 5 to 2 on Jan. 21, with Councilmen Joe Carchio and Jim Katapodis dissenting, to approve the environmental impact report for a project aimed at improving the intersection, which is not far from the Costa Mesa city limits. Huntington Beach can now apply for funding. The project would add an additional through lane in each direction on Adams, two right-turn lanes on the northbound side of Brookhurst and one right-turn lane on the southbound side.
