Calif.’s OCTA invests $9.4M in bike projects

Posted on August 14, 2012

The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) approved $9.4 million to improve bike connections throughout the county.

The funds will be spread among 23 projects to add new bike lanes and trails, build bridges and crossings for cyclists, improve signs and add bike racks.

“Bicycles are an ideal way to get around Orange County and OCTA believes strongly in improving this mode of transportation,” said OCTA Chairman Paul Glaab, also the mayor of Laguna Niguel. “This is a collaborative effort with cities throughout Orange County and we look forward to providing a better ride for all cyclists.”

In February, OCTA invited agencies to compete for these grants through the Bicycle Corridor Improvement Program, which OCTA developed as part of the federally funded Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program.

Local agencies will match the grants with $3.9 million for a total investment of more than $13 million.
