Gold Line Extension Getting Real

New, 9 comments

Funding for the 11-mile, six-stop Gold Line extension from Pasadena to Azusa will be voted on tomorrow at the Metro board meeting, reports the Pasadena Star-News. It's really just a fund transfer agreement, with Metro consenting to hand over $690 million in Measure R money to the light-rail's construction authority (which will likely pay back a loan the authority is using to fund construction set to start in June). There was some worry this money swap wouldn't happen before an upcoming deadline, and the planned summer groundbreaking wouldn't happen. But things seemed to have coalesced and the line is scheduled to open in 2014. [PSN]
