Title

Adopt Resolutions of Necessity for the State Route 55 Improvement Project Between Interstate 405 and Interstate 5

 

Overview

The Orange County Transportation Authority is implementing the State Route 55 Improvement Project between Interstate 405 and Interstate 5. The project requires acquisition of property rights from public and private parties adjacent to the existing freeway and city streets. On September 11, 2017, the Board of Directors approved acquiring right-of-way for this project.  At this time, staff has been unable to reach an agreement to purchase required property rights from the subject properties.  It is now necessary for the Board of Directors to exercise its power of eminent domain by adopting resolutions of necessity in order to acquire these necessary property rights in time to make the properties available to meet the project delivery and construction schedules.

 

Recommendation(s)

Adopt Resolutions of Necessity Nos. 2021-003, 2021-004, 2021-005, and 2021-006, and authorize and direct General Counsel to prepare, commence, and prosecute a proceeding in eminent domain for the purpose of acquiring necessary right-of-way and real property interests for the for the State Route 55 Improvement Project between Interstate 405 and Interstate 5.
