Orange County launches interactive transportation projects dashboard ahead of November vote


Among the many items on this November’s ballot, voters will be asked whether they want to approve a one-cent sales tax increase that would be a dedicated funding source to address transportation needs across Orange County. In a survey done by the county, it showed residents say traffic congestion is the number one transportation challenge they face today.

The Transportation Sales Tax would fund specific transit and transportation infrastructure needs in Orange County to increase safety, mobility, and connectivity. This includes:

  • Improving county roadways and intersections
  • Improving traffic signal technology
  • Expanding LYNX bus service and SunRail commuter rail service
  • Improving pedestrian safety
  • Adding more bike lanes and bike safety improvements
  • Adding street lighting and sidewalks
  • Providing transportation funding to municipal governments in Orange County

The question I am asked all the time is, what does that mean for my neighborhood? Now, we’ve created a way for you to find out via an interactive, online map. Residents can navigate and gather information related to the proposed Transportation Initiative projects list.

Users can navigate the dashboard by scrolling through the site, or using the navigation bar to reach direct links. The interactive map has a zoom feature and projects can be filtered by address, zip code, and our commission districts.

Orange County’s Geographic Information System team designed the page to be user friendly and easily accessed from a variety of devices. The interactive dashboard includes a mapping tool, describes project categories, transit plans, city projects, and oversight plans — all of which have been published in the 1156-page Transportation Initiative Report.

If the transportation sales tax referendum is passed, revenues would start being collected on January 1, 2023 and could bring in nearly $600 million per year dedicated to transportation issues.
