Nice new video from the Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority, the agency planning and building the 12.3-mile project that will bring the Gold Line east to Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and — with funding from San Bernardino County — Montclair.
The public is welcome to attend the groundbreaking for the project at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday at Citrus College in Glendora. Details:
The $1.5-billion project includes $1 billion in funding from Measure M, the sales tax ballot measure approved by Los Angeles County voters in Nov. 2016. Construction requires the complicated task of moving existing freight and Metrolink tracks and is forecast to be complete in 2026 with the extension opening in 2027. When complete, the Construction Authority will turn over the project to Metro, which will operate it.
