Beach Boulevard Corridor Study
Transforming Beach Boulevard
A study to improve Beach Boulevard from La Habra to Huntington Beach was conducted by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and the State of California Department of Transportation District 12 (Caltrans) and concluded in April 2020. The Beach Boulevard Corridor Study assessed existing conditions, forecasted projections of future growth, and developed solutions ranging from enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and transit facilities to improved signal synchronization.
OCTA and Caltrans worked closely with the corridor cities and the County of Orange throughout the study. Two phases of public outreach were also conducted to get the public’s feedback on the corridor’s existing conditions and specific improvements, collecting more than 2,350 surveys. Through this collaboration, a corridor vision for all modes of travel was developed and can now be advanced by Caltrans, the cities, and the County of Orange. Study results and all public feedback, which can be viewed here, have been shared with these agencies to aid in the development of future improvement projects.

- Become more informed on the physical characteristics and amenities, along the entire Beach Boulevard corridor,
- Receive recommendations of uniform corridor themes and branding,
- Be better equipped to enhance accessibility of pedestrian, bicycle, and transit infrastructure,
- Be more equipped to improve connectivity between existing and planned transportation hubs, and
- Use Study results to apply for funding for related projects within their city.
