Please join us on Thursday, June 22, to learn about proposed improvements to the Orange Freeway (SR-57) between the exits of Orangewood and Katella avenues.
OCTA, in partnership with Caltrans, is in the initial phase of evaluating the potential benefits and effects of extending the fifth general-purpose lane of northbound SR-57 from Orangewood to Katella Avenue.
The project area is about a mile long and is located between Orangewood Avenue in Orange and Katella Avenue in Anaheim. It is a vital stretch of SR-57, which serves as an important link between Los Angeles County, Orange County and the Inland Empire.
The project is part of Measure M, the half-cent sales tax approved by voters for transportation improvements in Orange County. This initial stage of the project will study the benefits and potential environmental impacts of increasing capacity on the SR-57 by extending the fifth general-purpose lane to this portion of the freeway.
The public is encouraged to get familiar with the project and provide input, which is essential to ensuring a successful outcome.
The project’s draft environmental document is anticipated to circulate for public review and comment in mid-2018, and the environmental study phase is expected to be completed in late 2018.
The open house will take place on Thursday, June 22, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria at Portola Middle School in Orange, 270 N. Palm Drive.
