OCTA’s traffic engineers helped complete the first phase of signal synchronization along Alicia Parkway, Beach Boulevard and Chapman Avenue which included 159 intersections along 44 miles of roadway—helping improve the flow of traffic along these corridors.

Major streets and roads have enjoyed their fair share of improvements…and traffic relief. Thanks to a series of projects and programs including the completion of the final two Measure M Smart Streets and the synchronizing of more than 159 intersections, traffic is flowing smoother. OCTA
continues to administer a variety of funding
programs such as the M2 Local Fair Share
and the Regional Capacity
that are designed to assist
cities and the county widen streets,
improve intersections, and synchronize
signals—all targeting projects that help
with congestion relief.
