Oso Parkway Bridge Project
Roadway & Highway Project
The Oso Parkway Bridge Project enhances mobility for South Orange County residents and commuters by connecting the 241 Toll Road and Los Patrones Parkway. A new sidewalk and dedicated bike lanes improve safety for students and families traveling to Tesoro High School. Businesses in cities such as Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo benefit from increased connectivity provided by the roadway.
Thanks to the Oso Parkway Bridge, drivers traveling northbound on Los Patrones Parkway wanting to continue onto the 241 Toll Road and drivers traveling southbound on the 241 wanting to continue onto Los Patrones Parkway can now do so seamlessly by driving under the new bridge structure rather than having to stop at a busy signalized intersection.
The project is the culmination of a dynamic partnership between the Transportation Corridor Agencies, which funded the nearly $40 million project; OC Public Works, which oversaw construction; and Caltrans, which owns the 241 Toll Road and Los Patrones Parkway.
The Oso Parkway Bridge Project, which enhances mobility throughout the region, came to fruition without the use of taxpayer dollars.
A virtual grand opening of the roadway included a unique virtual “ribbon-cutting” featuring local elected officials; remarks from Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett and TCA Board Members; comments from stakeholders, including Caltrans; a project video; drone footage; and more.
To view the virtual grand opening, visit YouTube.com/TheTollRoadsOC after Jan. 13.
