Give Us Your Feedback: 2nd Public Hearing for SR-710 is April 14!

The second of four public hearings to provide feedback on the Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) for SR-710 will be held Tuesday, April 14, 2015. (View the document it here.)

The EIR/EIS looks at five alternatives to improve transportation in the 4.5-mile SR-710 “gap” between SR-710 in Alhambra and I-210 in Pasadena, including:

  ->  No Build option that would leave conditions as they are. 

  ->  A traffic management system to upgrade and synchronize signals and improvements to local street intersections to more quickly move traffic that exits the dead end freeway. 

  ->  A rapid bus line featuring high frequency service with minimal stops and potentially a dedicated bus lane.

  ->  Light rail to carry passengers between East Los Angeles and Pasadena.

  ->  A freeway tunnel that would extend the SR-710.

No decisions have been made on any proposed alternative. A 120-day public comment period for the draft study began March 6 and ends July 6, 2015.

You can provide comments verbally at one of the hearings, in writing by filling out a comment card at a hearing, or online here.

If you have questions about the five alternatives or the study process, you can ask one of the subject matter experts located in the Map Viewing area at the hearings.
