The Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority has posted new interactive maps, showing San Gabriel Valley destinations in relation to future stations along the line from Pasadena to the Azusa/Glendora border. I’ve posted a couple of the maps above.
The Irwindale map is interesting in what it doesn’t show — a vast warehouse, office park and manufacturing district immediately south of the tracks. It’s not a traditional business district by any means, but hopefully the train will be a good option for workers reaching those jobs.
The Gold Line Foothill Extension is funded by the Measure R sales tax approved by L.A. County voters in 2008. It is being built by the Construction Authority, an independent agency, and will be turned over to Metro to operate when complete. It is scheduled to open in 2015.
