Work is now set to begin to connect the future extension to the existing Gold Line Sierra Madre Villa Station.
The first phase of work is scheduled for November 17. More work will be done through the upcoming winter. All work is subject to weather postponement. The construction authority is also planning the second phase of the project that would extend the rail line to Montclair. That segment is not funded at this time but is in Metro's Long Range Transportation Plan.
The Gold Line Foothill Extension is a $1.7-billion, 24-mile extension of the Gold Line light-rail system. The project is planned in two segments, Pasadena to Azusa and Azusa to Montclair. The Pasadena to Azusa segment is fully funded by Los Angeles County's Measure R and is on schedule to be completed in 2016.
