Tonight at 6 p.m., the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority will host a virtual community meeting on the Glendora extension under construction in Pomona. Stakeholders can zoom in for a construction update and get their questions answered. For more details on the meeting, see the event flyer, the Construction Authority calendar, or call (626) 471-9050. Pre-register via Zoom.
Construction continues on the 9.1-mile Foothill Gold Line light rail extension, which will include four new stations: Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne and Pomona. For a detailed image of the localized construction, see the Authority’s interactive construction map.
For this phase, major construction works started in 2020 after the approval of the construction contract in 2019; it is currently 33 percent complete. The line is expected to open to the public in 2025.
Construction crews took care of level crossings on the streets, bridges over waterways, the pedestrian underpass at Glendora Station, relocation of existing freight rail tracks, etc. Watch the videos below to get a feel for the progress of the project. The videos feature plenty of dramatic drone footage of the hallway building.
