About the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority
The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority is an independent transportation planning and construction agency created in 1999 by the California State Legislature. Its purpose is to extend the Metro Gold Line from Union Station to the Los Angeles County Line. The Metro Gold Line light rail line opened in 2003, connecting downtown Los Angeles and Pasadena. Los Angeles County’s Measure R half-cent sales tax increase will fully fund the segment between Pasadena and Azusa, currently under final design and construction, and will partially fund the segment from Azusa to Montclair. Additional funding will be sought following completion of the environmental review process to complete the line to Montclair. The environmental process for the Azusa to Montclair segment began in early 2011 and will be completed in late 2011 under state environmental guidelines (CEQA) and in mid-2012 under federal environmental guidelines (NEPA).
More information about the project and the Authority can be found at www.foothillextension.org.
