SR-710 Study Open Houses

 

For full list of times, dates and locations: click here.

This study team is evaluating options to improve mobility and relieve congestion within the study area.

Learn about the multi-modal alternative concepts under evaluation in the SR-710 Study process, including, but not limited to, “no build” alternative, improvements to local streets, expansion of transit systems, as well as freeway options.

Come anytime during the meeting hours. Information at all the open houses will be the same. The open houses are designed to provide one-on-one dialogue with the study team. This is a learning environment in which community members may engage at their own pace and in the subject matter that interests them most. The alternative concepts and other study process information will be available for viewing on large interactive boards staffed by multi-disciplinary team members. (Please note that these forums are not public hearings, and there will be no formal presentation.)

The analysis narrows down the alternatives that will be […]

The 710 Game: Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $780 million

|
It seems suggestive that Metro and Caltran’s just launched SR-710 Conversations public outreach process features a timeline of transportation milestones printed as a board game. It remains to be seen whether it will be a game that the public plays: a creative rethinking of mobility needs in the San Gabriel Valley and Northeast Los Angeles, […]

Metro’s North 710 Freeway Tunnel Study Meetings in High Gear, Pasadena Working Group Offers Brainy Alternatives

|
Smart people live in Pasadena. Some of them work for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and send probes to Mars. Others spend their days figuring out quantum mechanics at Caltech. And still others dabble in transportation. A study group formed by Pasadena’s Mayor Bill Bogaard and its City Manager has a smart idea in response to L.A. Metro’s study to link […]
