    MEASURE M2: PRESERVING OUR LEGACY

    Measure M2 is Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements. The voluntary acquisition of open space properties and restoring of natural habitat enables OCTA to receive streamlined environmental approvals for the 13 Measure M2 freeway improvement projects. As a result, the freeway projects will progress quicker and more efficiently, and result in more comprehensive environmental mitigation.
