The La Pata Avenue/Camino Del Rio Extension Project is designed to complete the planned improvements for La Pata Avenue and Camino Del Rio, as identified in the County of Orange Master Plan of Arterial Highways and as shown in the figure below. The improvements will reduce congestion and improve regional mobility in South Orange County by providing a north-south alternative to Interstate 5 between Ortega Highway to the north and Avenida Vista Hermosa to the south.

The Project consists of three construction schedules which are as follows:
La Pata Gap Connector (Schedule A) - Completed Construct four new lanes, extending the existing La Pata Avenue from just south of Vista Montana to Calle Saluda
La Pata Widening (Schedule B) - Currently in Construction Widen La Pata Avenue from three to five lanes, one additional travel lane in each direction, from Ortega Highway to just south of Vista Montana
Camino Del Rio Extension (Schedule C) - Completed Extend Camino Del Rio, a four-lane roadway, from its existing terminus to the newly extended La Pata Avenue
On Thursday, December 21, 2017, southbound travelers on Avenida La Pata will be transitioned to newly completed lane sections on the east side of the roadway as part of the ongoing road widening improvements (see below for specific areas).
OC Public Works contractor crews will perform a series of temporary traffic stoppages (each approximately 10-mins. in duration) at specific locations on Southbound Avenida La Pata in order to install overhead utility wires above the roadway.
Making Orange County a safe, healthy, and fulfilling place to live, work, and play, today and for generations to come, by providing outstanding, cost-effective regional public services.
