Keeping Orange County Moving Today and Tomorrow



Promises Kept


For the last 16 years, Measure M has kept its promises to you by improving Orange County’s freeways, streets and roads and transit network. In 2007, $250 million in Measure M funds was distributed for improvements to Orange County’s transportation system. Continuous access carpool lanes opened on the improved Garden Grove Freeway (SR-22) to keep traffic moving. On the Santa Ana Freeway, the bottleneck through Buena Park is being eliminated as the I-5 Gateway Project continues. Throughout the county, local streets were improved and potholes filled to smooth your drive. A new Metrolink station opened in Buena Park, and Measure M helped provide expanded Metrolink weekday and weekend train service. Measure M also provided discounted bus fares for seniors and persons with disabilities.

The original Measure M transportation improvement program ends in 2011. All of the major projects promised to voters are underway or complete. Thanks to your support during 2007 and for the remaining years of Measure M, OCTA will keep fulfilling the promises of Measure M with safer, faster and more efficient transportation solutions for Orange County.
