The Orange County Transportation Authority and Caltrans District 12, in partnership with the City of Anaheim and neighboring communities, are kicking-off the Project Approval/Environmental Documentation (PA/ED) phase, commonly referred to as the environmental review process, for the proposed Northbound SR-57 Widening Project from Orangewood Avenue to Katella Avenue in the City of Anaheim.
Funded in part by Measure M, Orange County’s voter-approved ½ cent transportation sales tax measure, the proposed project is the third in a series of projects designed to increase capacity, improve operations and enhance safety on the northbound 57 Freeway, which connects commuters and commercial motorists to various major entertainment and employment destinations, including, but not limited to Honda Center, Anaheim Stadium, Cal State Fullerton and Brea Mall. The 57 Freeway also provides access to numerous residential communities in north Orange County, including the cities of Anaheim, Fullerton, Placentia, Brea and La Habra.
The PA/ED phase is expected to start in late 2015/early 2016. As part of this effort, OCTA and Caltrans District 12 will study the potential performance benefits and environmental effects of adding a general-purpose lane, as well as making ramp improvements, between Orangewood Avenue and Katella Avenue. While additional alternative concepts may be added to the process, it is currently estimated that OCTA and Caltrans District 12 will study three (3) different build alternatives, as well as consider future conditions resulting from a no-build alternative. The PA/ED phased is schedule to take about 2 years to complete.
