Adopt a Resolution affirming the County of Orange's commitment to the projects submitted in the 2025 Federal Transportation Improvement Program for federal FY 2024-25 to federal FY 2029-30.







Adoption of the 2025 Federal Transportation Improvement Program for federal FY 2024-25 to federal FY 2029-30 will allow the County of Orange to continue receiving local, state and federal funding for road related projects in order to improve transportation circulation, reduce traffic congestion and improve regional mobility for the County of Orange residents, businesses and visitors.






The Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) is a federally mandated program of all surface transportation projects that will receive federal funding, are subject to a federally required action or are regionally significant in the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) region. As the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Orange County, SCAG is responsible for developing the FTIP for submittal to the California Department of Transportation and the federal funding agencies. 


Under state law, OCTA has the local responsibility of proposing County of Orange (County) projects, using the current Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) policies, programs and projects as a guide from submittals by cities and local agencies. The locally prioritized lists of projects are forwarded to SCAG for review. Following a comprehensive review of all locally prioritized lists of projects, SCAG develops the FTIP based on consistency with the current RTP. Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is updating the FTIP covering Federal FY 2024-25 to Federal FY 2029-30.


The FTIP Resolution recommended for adoption by the Board of Supervisors (Board) represents the County's commitment to fund and implement its projects.


Each year, the County develops a 7-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) in preparation of the upcoming fiscal year budget adoption. Inclusion of a project in the CIP indicates the County plans to develop and construct the capital improvement project to provide significant benefits to the residents, businesses and visitors of the County.


On October 27, 2015; January 23, 2018; November 19, 2019; and January 25, 2022, the Board approved FTIP Resolutions, including FTIP amendment reports detailing project changes and status.


On June 6, 2023, the Board approved the CIP for FY 2023-24 to FY 2029-30 and adopted a Resolution for the OCTA Measure M2 eligibility to support OC Public Works’ mission to deliver roadway, flood control and active transportation projects necessary to improve public safety, reduce traffic congestion, improve regional mobility and provide flood protection.


OCTA will develop a comprehensive list of projects for submittal to SCAG, the State of California Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration for inclusion in the FTIP. The following is a list of County projects that are included in the current and proposed updated FTIP:


Regionally Significant Projects

Federally Funded Projects

Cow Camp Road

OC Loop, Carbon Creek Channel, Segment D Bikeway

Los Patrones Parkway Extension

OC Loop, Coyote Creek Channel, Segments O, P, Q Bikeway


Santa Ana Gardens Channel Bikeway


Compliance with CEQA: This action is not a project within the meaning of CEQA Guidelines Section 15378 and is therefore not subject to CEQA since it does not have the potential for resulting in either a direct physical change in the environment or a reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment. The approval of this agenda item does not commit the County to a definite course of action in regard to a project since the proposed action is an adoption of a Resolution of the 2025 FTIP for federal FY 2024-25 to federal FY 2029-30, which will allow the County to continue receiving local, state and federal funding for road related projects, all of which has either already undergone environmental review in compliance with CEQA, is currently undergoing review under CEQA or will undergo review under CEQA prior to project approval. The adoption of the Resolution is therefore not subject to CEQA.
