OCTA staff reported that it’s finishing up the first phase of the Central Harbor Boulevard Transit Corridor Study, which will analyze and develop options to improve transit service on Harbor Boulevard between the Fullerton Transportation Center and Westminster Boulevard.
Harbor Boulevard is the county’s busiest north to south transit corridor. The 8-mile project study area, which includes the western terminus of the future OC Streetcar, accounts for 19 percent of the daily OCTA boardings.
The study involves working with the corridor cities to assess existing and future mobility needs along the study area, develop improvement strategies and evaluate potential connections to planned and proposed projects.
A stakeholder workshop will be held Jan. 28 and two public workshops will be held in February to share preliminary work and receive feedback. During the next phase, alternatives will be developed with a second round of outreach held during the summer to solicit input on them.
