Alton Parkway Extension Gap Closure - The $28 million, 2.1 mile Alton Parkway project is an innovative roadway gap closure project, implemented with multiple partnerships, and constructed for the future.  The goal was to implement the last major link in the Foothill Circulation Phasing Plan and improve regional traffic circulation.  Alton Parkway is designated as a major six-lane arterial highway on the County’s Master Plan of Arterial Highways, and serves as one of the last major arterial connectors constructed between Central Orange County and the Eastern Foothill communities of Lake Forest.  The true benefit of completing Alton Parkway from Irvine Boulevard to Towne Centre Drive was connecting communities and people. Delivered on time, the project realized a cost savings of $15 million.
