Northbound SR-57 Improvements Advance

OCTA continues to move forward on a project to improve northbound SR-57 in a critical part of the central Orange County freeway network.

Recently, Parsons Transportation Group was selected to prepare plans, specifications and estimates for improvements to northbound SR-57 in Anaheim and Orange. 

The SR-57 Northbound Improvement Project will add one regular lane in the northbound direction of SR-57 between Orangewood and Katella avenues to improve traffic.

It will also extend the auxiliary lane from the Orangewood Avenue off-ramp to the Katella Avenue off-ramp to create more space to merge, along with expanding the Katella Avenue off-ramp to allow more vehicles to exit the freeway at the same time.

The project is part of OC Go, Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements, also known as Measure M.
