Improvements on the Costa Mesa Freeway (SR-55) will begin this summer to increase mobility on this vital corridor. OCTA is offering a virtual meeting on Wednesday, May 18 from 5 to 6 p.m. to learn more about the SR-55 Improvement Project (I-405 to I-5), including construction activities and how to stay informed. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation and Spanish interpretation will be provided. There are two ways to participate.

SR-55 is a major route connecting Orange County to Riverside and San Bernardino counties that also provides access to key business centers, John Wayne Airport and the beach cities. To help improve commutes, the project will add one regular lane and one carpool lane in each direction, as well as auxiliary or merge lanes. The $475.1 million project is funded by OC Go (also known as Measure M), state and federal funds. The California Transportation Commission (CTC) awarded OCTA $140 million in competitive state transportation funding to support the project.
