The tracks for the Gold Line extension from Pasadena to Azusa are now laid and the 11.5-mile leg of the line is now 80 percent complete. This super-sped-up video covers what's expected to be a 17-minute ride in just six minutes, but it slows down at all the stations long enough for viewers to get a glimpse of what those will look like. (Also, 17 minutes to get from Azusa to Pasadena is the magical dream of anyone who's ever driven the 210 Freeway at rush hour, so that's going to be amazing.) The line's scheduled to open in the spring of 2016.
