OCTA Seeks Public Input on Ways to Improve SR-91 Corridor

OCTA is seeking public input as it conducts a study about potential ways to improve mobility in the SR-91 corridor through Orange County.

The study will look at ways to improve travel efficiency and air quality in and around the corridor, which spans the approximately 23-mile stretch of the SR-91 freeway between Los Angeles County to the west and Riverside County to the east.

Cities along the corridor include Buena Park, La Palma, Anaheim, Fullerton, Placentia and Yorba Linda.

To participate, please complete a brief online survey about travel through the area, challenges faced and suggestions for travel improvements. The survey is available through March 27. Those interested can also sign up for email updates on the plan by completing the survey.

The SR-91 Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan Study is in its early stages and will consider ways to improve travel options on and adjacent to the SR-91 Freeway. For instance, making improvements to a Metrolink station or implementing limited-stop bus service could help relieve congestion throughout the SR-91 corridor.

The findings of the study will eventually help OCTA improve system operations, travel efficiency and, as a result, improve air quality by reducing traffic congestion.

The SR-91 is a major travel corridor for people accessing job centers, entertainment and recreation venues, and schools and universities. Up to 325,000 vehicles travel through that stretch every day. The area is largely built out with no additional room for the freeway to expand. But additional housing, business growth and other development continues to add to traffic congestion, increasing the need for public transportation and additional travel choices in the area.
