Metro to Discuss 710 Freeway at Pasadena Council Meeting Monday Night

This is the latest in a series of Metro meetings with the public to gain input regarding the 710 Freeway's possible expansion.

Metro and the Pasadena City Council's quest for public discussion regarding the divisive issue of the 710 Freeway and its possible expansion will continue at the Monday evening meeting of the Pasadena City Council, which takes place in the Ballroom Building of the Pasadena Convention Center Monday night at 7 p.m. 

This discussion will be the only item on the agenda, according to a release from the city.

Metro's "SR-710" study is still in the analysis phase, with tonight's meeting serving as the latest effort for Metro to discuss the impacts and information any project would have with residents around the area. The project, the city notes, isn't under the city's control.

Sierra Madre, like several other neighboring cities, has taken a position in opposition to an extension of the 710.

The release notes several alternatives under consideration:

  • Bridging the 710 Freeway “gap” by building an extension in a tunnel through Pasadena to connect with the I-710 freeway in Alhambra
  • A bus rapid transit line.
  • A light rail transit line.
  • Other transportation management strategies/projects.

Metro wasn't there. This is inaccurate.
