ORANGE, CALIF. - Metrolink, Orange County Transportation Authority, and Operation Lifesaver Inc. officials launched the agencies' combined safety campaign of "See Tracks? Think Train!" today at the city's train station that serves both Metrolink and Amtrak passengers.
"If a car can't stop on a dime then a train definitely can't," Orange County Supervisor Todd Spitzer said. "Every year, thousands of people's lives are destroyed by what has become a nonchalant attitude around train tracks. People carelessly walk or drive across tracks without fully comprehending the speed and power of an oncoming train. Tragically, these unfortunate individuals pay consequences that cannot be taken back. See tracks, think train is a simple message, but one that will save lives"

The Measure M Environmental Cleanup Program will provide $2.8 million for 18 projects across Orange County to improve overall water quality from transportation-generated pollution.
The Orange County Transportation Authority board recently approved funding for the projects through the Measure M Environmental Cleanup Program. The program is designed to remove the more visible forms of pollutants, such as litter and debris, which collect on the roadways and in the storm drains prior to being deposited in waterways and the ocean. These funds are available for Orange County local governments to purchase equipment and upgrades for existing catch basins and other related projects. Examples include screens, filters, and inserts for catch basins, as well as other devices designed to remove pollutants.

ORANGE – Construction crews will close the Ortega Highway on-ramp to the southbound San Diego Freeway (I-5) freeway for about six weeks beginning just after midnight –12:01 a.m. – on Monday, Sept. 22.
The closure is necessary as crews begin the last phase of construction on the project to reconstruct the Ortega Highway interchange with the I-5 freeway in San Juan Capistrano. It will allow crews to realign and reconstruct the on-ramp to tie in with the new south half of the Ortega Highway bridge.
