The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and Caltrans are studying options to extend the SR-710 North from Alhambra to Pasadena.
"Caltrans and Metro are working together on the State Route 710 North Study to evaluate mobility and find traffic congestion solutions between the western San Gabriel Valley and the east/northeast area of Los Angeles. The transportation network in this area was started more than half a century ago but was never completed. Population growth will make traffic congestion worse and result in more traffic accidents, air pollution and related illnesses, and hurt the Southern California economy if nothing is done.
The Study is funded by Measure R, which was passed by two-thirds of Los Angeles County voters in 2008, mandating transportation upgrades throughout the County. The measure specifically allocates $750 million for the 710 North traffic congestion relief efforts."
Metro and Caltrans have released a draft environmental document and accepted comments through July 6.
