ABOUT US

History

In 1959, a very small group of Traffic Engineers in Orange County started meeting during their noon hour once each month. It had become quite evident that a dire need existed within the county for a forum within which all persons engaged in the Traffic Engineering function might periodically gather, discuss individual or mutual problems, arid arrive at solutions which reflect the combined talents of the professionals and the public. The organizers were soon joined by representatives of other firms or agencies who sought to either lend their talents or become recipients of professional assistance. The ORANGE COUNTY TRAFFIC ENGINEERING COUNCIL did indeed become the desired forum.

 

 

OCTEC Fellows

In order to better serve our community of transportation professionals, OCTEC introduced the “OCTEC Fellow” to show our appreciation for those who have contributed to the traffic/transportation engineering industry and have since retired.  It provides for continued engagement with the benefits of lifetime membership and discounted luncheons.
