From Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority CEO Habib Balian: “Skanska is nearly complete with the internal support structure for the I-210 Bridge superstructure. 500 tons of reinforcing steel has been installed along the 584-linear-foot structure, and internal walls are now being formed to support the bridge deck. In the coming weeks, 2,100 cubic yards of concrete will be placed within this area.”
On a related note, here is a story that ran in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune about the Measure R extension proposed by Metro staff. The gist of the story: The San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments wants more details about the proposed extension — specifically which local projects it would fund. The big question yet to be resolved: would an extension fund the Gold Line to Claremont or just the first phase to Azusa, the segment now under construction and funded by Measure R? Metro CEO Art Leahy told the COG that language in the original Measure R was ambiguous and Metro staff should have more details soon.
