State Route 710 North EIR/EIS Study

The Metro Board of Directors adopted the TSM/TDM Alternative as the Locally Preferred Alternative for the SR-710 North EIR/EIS at the Meeting on May 25, 2017.  The Board also adopted a Motion that reallocates the remaining Measure R funds to projects that will relieve congestion resulting from the SR 710 gap in the transportation system within the SR-710 North Study Area with priority to projects that are proximate to Interstate 10.  Metro requested that cities in the corridor develop a list of Early Action Projects for consideration for funding with the remaining Measure R Funds.  On January 29, 2018, the City Council authorized the Mayor to submit a list of Early Action Projects to Metro.

Background

In June 2010, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), in coordination with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), authorized moving forward with an environmental review phase for multi-modal solutions for the SR-710 study area.

Metro is the lead local agency for the study and Caltrans is the lead state agency. While Pasadena, its residents and businesses will be directly impacted if the study results in a construction project, neither the study nor any future project is under local control by the City of Pasadena.
