  • The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), is launching a study that will seek to improve Beach Blvd. into a seamless transportation corridor. With both older and newer commercial, entertainment, and residential properties along the highway, OCTA will pursue multimodal transportation solutions that will fit Beach Blvd’s diverse needs and enhance mobility along the corridor.

    The study will assess existing traffic conditions and develop solutions ranging from enhanced pedestrian, bicycle and transit facilities to improved signal synchronization. Beach Blvd., also known as State Route 39, is a north-south (Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach to Whittier Boulevard in La Habra) arterial that spans 23 miles and connects eight Orange County cities as well as portions of unincorporated Orange County, and La Mirada in Los Angeles County.

    This corridor is primarily built out and has a high volume of both commuter and recreational traffic, due to entertainment attractions along the route. The study, to be completed by Feb. 2020, will engage stakeholders during each phase including: project framing, conceptual alternatives assessment, and final recommendations. The first round of public outreach is anticipated in early 2019.
