I-405 Deadline For Comments Is Upon Us



 THE HOUR GLASS IS ALMOST EMPTY...
Although it's kind of slipped out of sight recently, the deadline for presenting comments to the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) on their plans to widen that artery from the 73 Toll Road to the 605 Freeway is rapidly approaching.  All comments must be received by Tuesday, July 17th!  Please see my last entry for more details, HERE.

Here's the pertinent information:

"NO" ON ALTERNATIVE #3!
As we've discussed many times before, the LEAST desirable choice of the three options presented to us is Alternative #3, which will require the demolition and replacement of the new Fairview Street bridge to accommodate the High Occupancy Toll lanes planned in that option.  Costa Mesans gain nothing, zero, zip, nada, from that choice and should oppose it strongly.

ALTERNATIVE #2 IS THE BEST CHOICE
The better option is Alternate #2 and we should all make our views known to the OCTA Board on this subject.

OCTA TO MEET ON THIS ISSUE NEXT MONTH
The Regional Planning and Highways Committee of the OCTA will discuss the options at a meeting at OCTA Headquarters on August 6th.  The full board will make a recommendation of a preferred alternative a week later.  NOW is the time to make your views known.
