ORANGE (CNS) - Orange County Transportation Authority Board members voted today to add a new lane in each direction to the San Diego (405) Freeway between Costa Mesa and the Los Angeles County line in Seal Beach, avoiding the issue of toll lanes that has drawn outcries from several north county cities.
The OCTA board voted 12-4 to add a new lane in both directions from Euclid Street to the San Gabriel (605) Freeway, with board members Todd Spitzer, Matt Harper, John Moorlach and Gary Miller dissenting. Board member Janet Nguyen abstained, and colleague Patricia Bates was absent.
The vote reaffirms the board's decision in October 2012 to add two free lanes at an estimated cost of $1.3 billion paid for by Measure M, a half-cent sales tax approved by voters for transportation improvements.

Made up largely of older professionals, working married couples, and more educated singles, the "new rich" are those with household income of $250,000 or more at some point during their working lives. That puts them, if sometimes temporarily, in the top 2% of earners. Even outside periods of unusual wealth, members of this group generally hover in the $100,000-plus income range, keeping them in the top 20% of earners.
