    Project Overview

    OCTA and Caltrans District 12 have kicked-off the Project Approval/Environmental Document phase (commonly known as the environmental review phase) on the SR-91 Widening Project between SR-57 and SR-55. Should a build alternative be environmentally cleared and subsequently adopted, this proposed project will potentially increase capacity and improve traffic flow and operations in both directions along SR-91 within the cities of Fullerton and Anaheim.

    At this time, the project is only funded through the environmental review phase. Design and Construction phases would move forward only after environmental clearance and when additional project funding is identified.

    Funding – Your OC Go Tax Dollars at Work

    The environmental review phase is funded in part by OC Go, formerly Measure M, Orange County’s voter-approved transportation investment plan. To learn more about OC Go projects, click here. The project is also funded through the State Transportation Improvement Program.

    The Environment Review Process

    OCTA and Caltrans conduct the environmental review process as mandated by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). At the heart of CEQA and NEPA is the public’s interest in the environment. In general, the purpose of the environmental review process is to identify a proposed project’s potentially significant environmental impacts and to develop measures to avoid, minimize or mitigate these impacts to less than significant when feasible and reasonable.

    Environmental Study Process

    The SR-91 Improvement Project is currently in the Project Approval and Environmental Document (PA/ED) Phase, commonly referred to as the environmental study process. As mandated by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), an Initial Study and Environmental Assessment (IS/EA) environmental document will be prepared.

    In general, the purpose of the environmental study process is to identify a proposed project’s potential environmental effects and to develop measures to avoid, minimize and/or mitigate these effects. Following is an image that provides a general step-by-step illustration of the study process.

    OCTA and Caltrans will be holding a public information meeting (open house format) on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 from 5 – 8 p.m. Full meeting details are listed below.

Public Participation and Community Engagement

At the heart of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is the public’s interest. And at the center of OC Go (formerly known as Measure M) is a commitment to the taxpayer.

Consistent with these public policy values, OCTA and Caltrans are implementing a public information and community engagement program that not only complies with, but exceeds public information mandates under CEQA and NEPA.

Throughout the environmental study process, OCTA and Caltrans will sustain a multimedia public communications and community engagement program intended to generate project awareness as well as facilitate public participation and comment.

In addition to the project webpage, the communications and engagement program will include:

  • Noticing and canvassing
  • Public information meetings (Open House format)
  • Elected official updates
  • Community presentations
  • Social media alerts
  • Constituent services
