Foothills Gold Line Construction Authority
PASADENA, Calif. – The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority held a dedication ceremony Saturday for the Arcadia Station, the second in a series of dedications to celebrate the upcoming completion of the nearly $1 billion Foothills Gold Line light rail project from Pasadena to Azusa. The Arcadia Station is located in the heart of downtown Arcadia, at the intersection of First Avenue and Santa Clara Street.

The 11.5-mile Foothill Gold Line project from Pasadena to Azusa, which broke ground in June 2010, is on time and on budget to be turned over to Metro for pre-revenue service in late-September 2015. Metro anticipates starting pre-revenue service this fall and passenger service in 2016. An opening date has not yet been determined.

The Foothill Gold Line is a nearly $2 billion, 12-station extension of the Metro Gold Line light rail system. The project is planned in two segments – Pasadena to Azusa and Azusa to Montclair. The majority of the costs are associated with the advanced engineering and environmental work underway for the Azusa to Montclair segment, which will ready the project for design-build procurement in 2017. The Construction Authority is currently seeking the $1 billion needed to construct the Azusa to Montclair segment.
