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. Currently, staff has been unable to reach an agreement to purchase required property rights from two of the subject properties. It is necessary for the Board of Directors to adopt resolutions of necessity and commence the eminent domain process to obtain possession of required property rights to maintain the project delivery and construction schedules.

 

Recommendation(s)

Adopt Resolution of Necessity Nos. 2021-049 and 2021-050, 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 State Route 55 Improvement Project between Interstate 405 and Interstate 5.
