IRVINE, Calif. - November 22, 2016
The public is invited to an open house style public meeting to learn about the proposed median-to-median tolled Express Connector directly linking the 241 Toll Road with the 91 Express Lanes near the Orange County and Riverside County border.
The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is holding the meeting from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at the East Anaheim Community Center, 8201 Santa Ana Canyon Road in Anaheim Hills as part of the environmental phase of the project.
Conducted in an open house format, the meeting will provide the public with the opportunity to learn about the proposed project as well as to provide comments that will be addressed in the Final Environmental Report.
For those unable to attend the meeting in person, a pre-recorded presentation will be available for viewing after 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 29 at thetollroads.com/241-91connector and through Jan. 9, 2017. Copies of the meeting exhibits, project fact sheet, link to environmental document and opportunity to comment is also available on the project web page.
A Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report / Environmental Impact Statement has been prepared and is available for public review and comment through Jan. 9, 2017. Comments can be submitted via:
The proposed 241/91 Tolled Express Connector is expected to reduce traffic congestion on the SR-91 general purpose lanes, improve traffic flow and enhance safety by reducing weaving across multiple non-tolled lanes and by providing a direct connection between the 241 Toll Road and the 91 Express Lanes, and help achieve regional goals of reducing emissions by improving movement in congested areas along the 241 Toll Road and SR-91.
The project’s environmental phase is expected to be completed in late 2017, and if approved, construction would begin in mid-2018.
The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) are two joint powers authorities formed by the California legislature in 1986 to plan, finance, construct and operate Orange County’s 67-mile public toll road system. Fifty-one miles of the system are complete, including the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads. TCA continues to meet the region’s growing need for congestion-free transportation alternatives.
