Construction on the Gold Line Foothill Extension has been well underway for some time; the project is extending the Gold Line from the Sierra Madre Villa station in eastern Pasadena for 11.5 miles to a station adjacent to Citrus College on the Azusa and Glendora border.
The photos run from west to east along the alignment and include aerial views of the bridge over the eastbound 210 that was finished last year, the new maintenance facility in Monrovia, work at the California Avenue crossing in Monrovia, the frame for the Duarte station platform and new tracks across Highland Avenue in Duarte, work at the Dalton Avenue crossing in Azusa and work on a new bridge that will cross a northern extension of Citrus Avenue in Azusa.
The project is being built by an independent agency, the Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority and is being funded by the Measure R sales tax approved by L.A. County voters in 2008. The project is currently scheduled to open in 2016 and will be operated by Metro.
