Earlier this month, Streetsblog reported on the Foothill Gold Line contract-signing ceremony that officially kicked off the newest construction phase for the project. Today, the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority released a new video explaining where the project is, and what to expect in the years ahead.

The Kewitt-Parsons team’s design-build work is underway, but major construction won’t be visible until next year. The new extension will include new stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, and Pomona – and, if additional funding is secured by 2021, stations in Claremont and Montclair.

For information on the new Gold Line extension, see the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority website.

SBLA San Gabriel Valley coverage is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.
