Above is the Alternatives Analysis for the SR-710 project that was released late Friday afternoon. Here’s the executive summary.
We’ve previously reported on the five alternatives that Metro staff is recommending for further study in a draft environmental impact statement/report, but the AA provides a lot of detail on the wide variety of options considered and why these five made the cut.
The five alternatives: no build, transportation system improvements (i.e. traffic signal and street improvements), a bus rapid transit line from East Los Angeles to Pasadena, light rail alternatives from East Los Angeles to Pasadena and a freeway tunnel directly connecting the two ends of the 710 freeway in Pasadena and Alhambra.
Maps of the alternatives recommended are posted after the jump. Click here for the project’s home page. There are also three community meetings scheduled beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23, in Pasadena — click here for time and dates.
