SmartStreets

The Smart Street concept seeks to improve roadway traffic capacity and smooth traffic flow through measures such as traffic signal synchronization, bus turnouts, intersection improvements and addition of travel lanes by removing on-street parking and consolidating driveways.

The network is comprised of the 21 streets listed below covering approximately 22 miles of arterial roadway. Beach Boulevard was the first Smart Street project to be implemented. OCTA took the lead on this project which opened to public acclaim in 1996. Three additional Smart Streets are in various stages of implementation by partner cities. These include Imperial Highway, Katella Avenue and Moulton Parkway (also known as Edinger Avenue, Irvine Center Drive and Street of the Golden Lantern.
