Orange County officials approve $43 billion transportation plan

from Construction DIVE

The Orange County (California) Transportation Authority Board of Directors authorized a $43.4 billion, long-range plan that will shape the area's transportation "blueprint" for at least the next 20 years. The Designing Tomorrow plan will address an estimated 66 percent increase in traffic congestion by the year 2040, driven by an anticipated 10 percent rise in area population, a 17 percent uptick in the number of local jobs and 12 percent more daily trips. Using input from the community, the plan prioritizes traffic signal synchronization, road and freeway maintenance, exploration of "innovative" transportation options (i.e., autonomous vehicles and on-demand ridesharing) and a balanced approach to spending, which includes investing across a variety of transit programs. Planned projects include the construction of high-occupancy vehicle lanes, regular lanes, express lanes, interchanges and toll roads. more
