The City of Monrovia and local elected officials broke ground this morning on the Station Square Transit Village. The project is located adjacent to the Historic Santa Fe Depot and the future Metro Gold Line Monrovia Station. The Station Square is the largest public works project in the city’s history. Monrovia is utilizing $25 million in federal funds, state grants, Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority money and Metro Measure R funds for the project. Plans include a transit plaza, neighborhood park, transit depot promenade and some off-street improvements to benefit the community and complement the opening of the new Metro Gold Line station in 2016.
