Foothill Gold Foothill Gold Line Groundbreaking

The extension of the Foothill Gold Line light rail has officially broken ground, becoming the first Measure M project since the infrastructure measure passed in November 2016, and will cost an estimated $1.5 billion. The project will extend the Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair with six stations. The groundbreaking ceremony took place in early December and welcomed city leaders, including Glendora Mayor Gary Boyer, U.S. Representatives Adam Schiff, Grace Napolitano, Judy Chu and Norma Torres, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
