The public has an extra 15 days to comment on the Orange County Transportation Authority's draft environmental impact report for a proposed widening of the San Diego (405) Freeway.
Orange County residents have until July 17 to send their comments to OCTA on the draft EIR, which outlines the potential effects on surrounding communities.
OCTA is working with the California Department of Transportation on a proposed $1.3-billion to $1.7-billion renovation that could add two to four lanes on the 405 between the San Gabriel (605) and Corona del Mar (73) freeways.
Two of the three options start at the 605 but end at Euclid Street in Fountain Valley and are on the lower end of the potential costs. The third option, the one most touted by the project's engineers and OCTA officials, stretches the widening to the 73.
Every freeway overpass within each proposal's area would have to be demolished, which in the third alternative's case would include the Fairview Road bridge. Costa Mesa finished a multi-million rebuild of that overpass three years ago.
