Photos of this weekend's work in preparation of the Gold Line Foothill Extension

Above are a few photos of this weekend’s work to prepare the existing Gold Line to be extended as part of the Gold Line Foothill Extension project. This is the reason that the Sierra Madre Villa station was closed this weekend.

Most of the work involves building and/or reworking the overhead wires and infrastructure that delivers electricity to light rail trains. Thanks to riders for the patience with the station closure — the Foothill Extension project is moving along at a steady clip and will extend the Gold Line for 11.5 miles to the Azusa/Glendora border with new stations in Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and two in Azusa.
