The following is a press release from Albert Ho, Media Relations for the Foothill Gold Line.
In advance of this Saturday’s historic groundbreaking ceremony for the Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair, the Construction Authority has released a 6-minute helicopter video tour of the rail corridor.
The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority will be breaking ground on the $1.5 billion, six-station Foothill Gold Line light rail extension from Glendora to Montclair in a ceremony at Citrus College this Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. The 12.3-mile extension will add new stations to the Metro Gold Line system in the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair; each will connect to the expanding rail network throughout Los Angeles County, as well as the Inland Empire. This ceremony also marks the first Measure M-funded rail project to move forward to construction.
The Glendora to Montclair project is being funded by Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. The portion of the project within Los Angeles County (Glendora to Claremont) is being mostly funded by Metro’s Measure M half-cent sales tax that was approved by voters in November 2016 and went into effect on July 1, 2017, as well as residual Measure R funds from the Pasadena to Azusa segment that was completed under budget. The portion from Claremont to Montclair is being funded by San Bernardino County.
Join the corridor cities, elected officials at all levels of government, the Construction Authority, Metro and special guests as we celebrate the beginning of construction of the Foothill Gold Line light rail extension from Glendora to Montclair.
