The Orange County Transportation Authority is preparing for the future with its Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), a roadmap to transportation improvements between now and 2035.
Orange County faces some challenges in the coming years, such as increased traffic congestion, limited funding for improvements, and restricted rights of way to widen highways, streets and roads. By 2035, the population of Orange County is expected to grow by 13 percent while jobs are projected to increase by 19 percent. This growth could result in a substantial increase in traffic delays if improvements are not made to the transportation system.
To address these issues, OCTA is asking the public for their feedback on transportation improvements such as signal synchronization, active transportation, managed lanes, high capacity transit, express transit, technology and other solutions.
Using the LRTP, OCTA is designing ways to deliver on voter-approved commitments, improve system performance and efficiency, expand transportation choices, and support fiscal and environmental sustainability initiatives.
Until Dec. 15, residents have the opportunity to provide input on the future of mobility for Orange County by watching a video and completing a brief survey on OCTA’s website: octa.net/lrtp. The input will help shape the LRTP and the future of Orange County transportation. …read more
