Learn about Measure M2 Transportation Improvements and Share Your Thoughts

It has been nearly 10 years since Measure M2, Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements, was approved by nearly 70 percent of the voters in 2006. A 30-year extension of an earlier program, Measure M2 was passed following the successful delivery of transportation improvements by its predecessor, Measure M1. Sales tax collection for M2 began in April 2011.

In this short amount of time, M2 has provided for $900 million to improve freeways, purchased 1,300 acres of open space for preservation, and made enhancements to 52 rail-highway grade crossings. These are just a few of the Measure M2 milestones that have helped improve the lives of Orange County residents.

As part of the Measure M2 Ten-Year Review, the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is asking stakeholders, such as members of the American Society of Civil Engineers, for feedback on the progress of M2 transportation improvements going on throughout Orange County.
