    Metro Gold Line Extention

    Post  jasminewu on Wed Dec 09, 2009 9:06 am

    On Nov. 21, after some long debates about costs and construction, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) board approved $851 million for the construction of an extension of the Metro Gold Line into Arcadia. The current first stop is at the Sierra Madre Villa station in east Pasadena, and this extension, cutting through Azusa, Irwindale, Duarte, and Monrovia, would make it easier for Arcadian commuters to take the Metro Gold Line.

    The trains on the new Gold Line are expected to run through Arcadia for about 1.2 miles over two freestanding bridges. At one point, the tracks will be elevated so the train can go over Santa Anita Ave., coming back to street level when crossing First Ave. Construction is planned to start with the rail bridge in the middle of the 210 freeway as early as June 2010, continuing until an estimated finish date in 2013.

    Upon hearing about an extension of the Gold Line into Arcadia, sophomore Aileen Mu said, “Yesss! Now it’s going to be easier… to go to Chinatown now!” Though the construction may take a while and most students will not be around to use the Metro Gold Line frequently after it completes, the new Metro Gold Line will be an exceedingly helpful and convenient mode of transportation for Arcadians.
