Welcome to the Central County Corridor Major Investment Study On-line Survey

1. Introduction

 
Central Orange County is a great place to live, work and play. And planning for its transportation future is very important.

As the county's transportation planning agency, OCTA is currently studying ways to improve the future transportation network in central Orange County, a process known as the Central County Corridor Major Investment Study (CCCMIS). This process includes evaluating a number of street, freeway and transit improvement concepts for:

• cost
• anticipated ability to relieve traffic
• potential impact on the community

As part of the study process, OCTA has been meeting with policy-makers, technical experts and community leaders. Ultimately, the OCTA Board of Directors will select what is called a locally-preferred strategy (LPS), which may serve as a guide for future improvements.

In the meantime, please give us your opinions on potential transportation improvements for central Orange County by answering the brief survey below.

Relieving traffic congestion
3. Please indicate your opinion on the following street improvement concepts:

Making minor improvements to existing streets, such as re-configuring lanes, creating turn-out lanes and coordinating traffic signals, which has the least cost and least impact on nearby neighborhoods but improves traffic the least.
4. Making moderate improvements to existing streets, such as enhanced intersections and adding new lanes according to existing City-approved plans, which have increased cost and potential impact on nearby neighborhoods and greater improvement for traffic.
5. Making major improvements to existing streets, such as adding lanes beyond existing plans and potentially beyond existing right-of-way, which will have significantly higher costs and impact on neighborhoods, but also potentially do the most to improve traffic.
6. Please indicate your opinion on the following freeway improvement concepts.

Making minor improvements to existing freeways, such as relieving bottlenecks/chokepoints and improving interchanges.
7. Making moderate improvements to existing freeways, such as adding general purpose lanes, extending carpool lanes and enhancing interchanges within the existing freeway footprint.
8. Making major improvements to freeways, such as adding new lanes or extending freeways, even if it means expanding or widening freeways beyond existing footprints
9. Improve and add lanes to the Costa Mesa Freeway (State Route 55) within existing land.
10. Buy new land to widen the Costa Mesa Freeway (State Route 55) by up to three lanes, beyond the existing freeway footprint.
11. Add capacity to the Costa Mesa Freeway (State Route 55) by building elevated lanes above the existing freeway.
12. Extend the Orange Freeway (State Route 57) to connect to the San Diego Freeway (I-405) by building a tunnel underneath the Santa Ana River Channel.
13. Extend the Orange Freeway (State Route 57) to connect to the San Diego Freeway (I-405) by building a street above the Santa Ana River Channel, at level with existing bridges over the River.
14. Add bus turn-out lanes on major streets.
15. Increase bus service frequency on major streets.
