Utility work and decaying tree will cause road and lane closures in Laguna

Motorists will encounter road and lane closures in a few portions of Laguna Beach in the coming weeks.

Bluebird Canyon Drive between Regatta Road and Morningside Drive will be closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday so crews can remove a decaying city-owned eucalyptus tree that is near homes and utility lines, according to a news release.

Detours will be available for residents to get to their houses, and trolley service will be rerouted through the area.
