The Joint February Luncheon Meeting with ITE Central Coast Section was held on Wednesday, February 12, at the Thousand Oaks Municipal Services Building. Monica Suter, PE, TE, PTOE, F, with the City of Santa Ana Public Works, presented on the topic "The ATP Project that Almost Wasn't." Monica shared the story of how the Lincoln Pathway Active Transportation Project in the City of Santa Ana progressed from an idea to reality.
The Lincoln Pathway will reconnect the Santiago Creek Trail to Lincoln Avenue, a link that will allow access from the creek trail to the Santa Ana Metrolink station and the future streetcar to the south. Key takeaways: community engagement, support from the city manager, and adaptability to enhance a project over time are all crucial to a successful project.
The meeting was a great opportunity for members from the two ITE sections to network while enjoying delicious food. Thank you to lunch sponsor, Gibson Transportation Consulting, Inc.
