OC Bridges Grade Separation Program
OCTA is constructing a series of seven bridges to separate vehicles from train along the BNSF Railway corridor in the cities of Anaheim, Fullerton and Placentia. The bridges will move cars safely and smoothly under or over the railroad tracks, enhancing safety and boosting mobility.
Currently, OCTA has completed and opened to motorists the Placentia, Kraemer, Orangethorpe, Tustin/Rose and Lakeview bridges and the State College Boulevard undercrossing. The Raymond Avenue undercrossing is scheduled for completion in summer 2018.
AA is providing support to OCTA with a comprehensive public outreach program to build awareness and support during the construction of the bridge projects. AA is responsible for project branding and messaging, gathering stakeholder input, website creation and maintenance, collateral material design, public meeting coordination, news media support, database development, helpline establishment and monitoring, construction alerts and special event planning. AA actively encouraged “conversations with the community” through a series of open houses, neighborhood meetings, community event and neighborhood kiosks, fact sheets, website, videos and presentations. AA recently planned and produced the OC Bridges Program Completion Ceremony to celebrate the substantial completion of the bridges.
