Parents who drop their children off at Seacliff Elementary School may have an easier time in the near future, as the city has floated plans to eliminate a traffic lane on Garfield Avenue by the school and replace it with a parking lane. Bob Stachelski, the city’s transportation manager, said his staff was working with the Orange County Transportation Authority on the plan and hoped to have approval from the authority next week. A number of parents have approached the city and school district in recent weeks to discuss improving traffic flow outside the school at 6701 Garfield Ave. “Our preference is whatever works for everybody,” Stachelski said.

Huntington Beach's streets may get quieter over the next few years, but it won't be for lack of cars or pedestrians. Six years ago, the city began a "green roads" program in which it repaves aging streets with a special concrete that combines asphalt with ground-up recycled tires. The material, known as rubberized asphalt concrete, or RAC, absorbs sound and can reduce road noise by 85%, according to the state. The city, which has repaved 28 stretches of road with RAC since 2005, plans to start work on its next area — Garfield Avenue between Newland and Magnolia streets — in the coming days.

At least two human cases of flea-borne typhus in as many months in a section of Huntington Beach have the county urging residents to put their pets on a proven flea-control program. The infections of humans by the disease, also known as endemic or murine typhus, have been confirmed in an area roughly bounded by Garfield Avenue, Adams Avenue, Magnolia Street and Beach Boulevard, Orange County Vector Control spokesperson Michael Hearst said. The Monday after Halloween, Nanci Bartley woke up with what she thought was the flu; she was nauseated, and two of her friends also developed flu symptoms that day. Two days later, her friends were on the road to recovery.
