This meeting is in regard to the “SR-710 Study” project that’s looking into the idea of connecting the 710 Freeway with possibly the I-210 Freeway or Highway 34. At the moment, it appears as though the project is in a “pre-Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) stage.” Metro plans to have public hearings on the completed EIR document at the end of 2013.
One idea is to bridge the 4.5 mile “gap” between the 710 and other transportation corridors by burrowing a tunnel underneath South Pasadena and Pasadena, as well as creating more “surface-level” streets. Caltrans has been working to build a connection route since the 1960s.
City Council Meeting on 710 Freeway - The public is welcome to attend.
Wednesday, Aug. 8th, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
