"The Orange County (California) Transportation Authority Board of Directors this month authorized a $43.4 billion, long-range plan that will shape the area’s transportation “blueprint” for at least the next 20 years," reports Kim Slowey.

"Using input from the community, the plan prioritizes traffic signal synchronization, road and freeway maintenance, exploration of 'innovative' transportation options (i.e., autonomous vehicles and on-demand ridesharing) and a balanced approach to spending, which includes investing across a variety of transit programs," adds Slowey.

More information on the "Designing Tomorrow" 2018 Long-Range Transportation Plan is available from a press release by OCTA as well as the plan document [pdf], both of which are available online.
