ORANGE – The Orange County Transportation Authority is holding a roundtable meeting to seek public input on how to improve biking in Orange County’s foothill communities.

The meeting is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 10 in the multipurpose room at Orchard Hills School, 11555 Culver Drive in Irvine.

The discussion will focus on efforts to improve regional connectivity for bicycling in the foothills area, which encompasses Yorba Linda, Orange, Tustin, Villa Park, Irvine and parts of Anaheim. During the meeting, participants may give feedback and comment on bikeway connectivity projects.

The OC Foothills roundtable is part of the Regional Bikeways Planning – a countywide effort involving OCTA, the Orange County Council of Governments, local jurisdictions and bicycle stakeholders.

The effort aims to build consensus on key bikeways corridors and assist local jurisdictions with project development.

The process has been ongoing since 2011. Studies have been completed for north, west/central, and south Orange County and the OC Foothills area is currently being studied.

    I’m not able to attend, but always wonder why the do not have bike lanes off the toll roads from 91 to foothill areas. Seems like this would extend the bike lanes and not the difficult to build.
