  1. I was a resident of Alhambra after our family had to relocate from Charnwood Ave. because of the new freeway going in. Since that time the only construction was to Valley Blvd. and a ramp of dirt that has been sitting dormant for decades! As a former resident the traffic congestion on Valley Blvd has caused many an accident and driver frustration, not to mention the added traffic on Valley Blvd. and Fremont St. over the years!

    Continueing the dormant section of the 710 from Valley to California Ave. will free up surface street congestion and add a faster way to commute through the area. We have the technology to produce an enviromentally safe underground system as prooved by our light rail systems.

    It has been prooven time and time again that any disturbance to the local area is to be expected during construction but the short term inconvenience will benefit everybody concerned in the long run.

  2. Why were none of the meetings scheduled in South Pasadena? Montery Park is not on-route for most of the potential varients, while South Pasadena is.

    • Hi Person,

      The meetings get moved around to include as many communities as possible. Previous meetings have been held in South Pasadena, and future meetings will be scheduled to take place in South Pasadena as well.
