The Metro Gold Line Construction Authority was formed in 1999 to design and build a light rail line from Los Angeles to Montclair. The first phase of the project was fully funded with state and local money at the beginning of construction and was completed on time and under budget. The first phase connects the cities of Los Angeles, South Pasadena and Pasadena. The Metro Gold Line links commuters to the regional transportation network at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and opened to the public on July 26, 2003. More than 150,000 riders boarded Metro Gold Line trains during its first weekend of operation.
The 12.3-mile extension of the Metro Gold Line system, will include six new stations, including one in the City of La Verne (see artist rendering below). The FA and MCA lay the framework for $1.4 billion to be available to complete the Los Angeles County portion of the project (from Glendora to Claremont), and the roles and responsibilities of the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority (Construction Authority) and Metro as partners to complete the line in the coming years. The Construction Authority continues to work with San Bernardino County to fully fund the portion of the project from Claremont to Montclair.
With this major milestone achieved, the Glendora to Montclair project will break ground on December 2, 2017 and is anticipated to reach completion in 2026. After groundbreaking, the first two years of the project will be spent relocating utilities, conducting pre-construction activities, finalizing engineering and hiring a design-build contractor. A contractor is anticipated to be hired in late-2018 and major construction is not anticipated to start until 2020.
