California’s Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) has appointed HTNB to design a 4.16-mile streetcar line linking Santa Ana Regional Transportation Center, through Downtown Santa Ana and the Civic Center, along a former Pacific Electric Railway right-of-way, to a new multimodal transit hub at Harbor Boulevard and Westminster Avenue in Garden Grove.

Services will operate at 10-15 minute intervals on the 10-station line, which will connect with 18 bus as well as Metrolink regional/commuter rail and Amtrak Pacific Surfliner services at Santa Ana Station. Construction is due to start in 2017 with commissioning scheduled for 2020.

The environmental approval process for the $289 million project was completed in March.
