Chris Boucly, community outreach manager, Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), will provide business and community leaders the opportunity to learn about the Interstate-405 Improvement Project, one of the largest infrastructure projects in the nation, during the Greater Irvine Chamber Government Affairs Committee meeting on Thursday, June 6, 8 - 9:30 a.m.

Boucly will discuss how Interstate 405 between I-5 and SR-55 plays a central role in progressing Orange County’s mobility, economy, and quality of life. This section of I-405 provides direct and indirect access to residential communities, employment centers, cultural and recreational facilities, John Wayne Airport, and some of the region’s top medical and academic institutions.

Since its formation in 1991, the OCTA has kept residents and commuters moving throughout the 34 cities and unincorporated areas of Orange County. OCTA’s responsibilities, programs, and services impact every aspect of transportation within the state’s third-largest county. OCTA keeps people moving by reducing freeway congestion, improving safety and efficiency on our local roads, providing bus service and regional multimodal connections, helping people find ways to leave their cars home, and providing safe, convenient transportation to those with special needs.
