Plans and Studies
The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is studying a 23-mile stretch of State Route 91 (SR-91), located in the County of Orange from the Los Angeles to Riverside county lines.
The Orange County Loops vision is to create seamless connections for people to bike, walk and connect to some of California's most scenic beaches and inland reaches.
The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is studying mobility hubgs as a potential strategy for bringing together various mobility services, amenities, and technologies all in one place to connect travelers more conveniently to their destinations.
Over the next 25 years, the population in south Orange County is anticipated to grow by 16 percent (about 170,000 residents), and employment is expected to grow by 18 percent (about 130,000 jobs). The study will address south Orange County's mobility needs through the year 2045.
OCTA updates the LRTP about every four years. The multi-modal projects and programs included are the basis for the Southern California Association of Governments' Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).
Orange County's Bike + Ped Plan is the first countywide Active Transportation Plan (ATP) for Orange County that addresses both bicycle and pedestrian networks. The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) has developed this plan to provide a framework for bikeway and pedestrian planning across the county, and to be compliant with the Caltrans Active Transportation Program (ATP) guidelines.
In June 1990, Proposition 111 was passed, which made additional funding available for transportation projects through a nine cent increase in the state gas tax and mandated that each county with 50,000 or more residents develop a Congestion Management Program (CMP).
The 2014 - 2019 OCTA Strategic Plan takes a comprehensive, forward-looking approach to address Orange County's transportation needs during the next five years.
Transportation plays a critical role in providing access to employment, medical and health care, education and other community services and amenities.
OCTA administers a variety of Measure M funding programs for cities to widen streets, improve intersections, coordinate signals, build Smart Streets and rehabilitate pavement.

OCTA annually prepares a long-range plan for improvement along the SR-91 corridor between SR-57 in Orange County and I-15 in Riverside County.
