  • SR-57 Northbound Widening Project - Katella Ave to Lincoln Ave

    SR-57 freeway

    This project was completed in November 2014.

    The Orange Freeway (SR-57) is an integral part of Southern California’s freeway network. In an effort to improve traffic flow, OCTA, in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation, added a general purpose lane to northbound SR-57 from Katella Avenue in Orange to Lincoln Avenue in Anaheim.

    This project is part of the OC Go (also known as Measure M) program. OC Go is a 30-year half cent sales tax for transportation improvements in Orange County through 2041. After experiencing the success and progress of M1, nearly 70% of Orange County voters renewed the half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements to launch OC Go in 2011. In addition to OC Go funding, this project received funding from state sources.
