As the battle over the 710 rages on, Highland Park has fallen into the fold. Caltrans has begun a technical study of continuing the freeway using an underground tunnel, and plans on boring test sites all throughout our neighborhood.
In June 2008, Caltrans and Metro began the SR-710 Tunnel Technical Study to examine the possibility of extending the SR-710 using a tunnel. The study is being conducted in a route neutral manner. This means that all reasonable and practicable alternatives for completing the route are being considered within the Study area, which encompasses the cities of Alhambra, Glendale, La Cañada-Flintridge, Los Angeles, Monterey Park, San Marino, South Pasadena and Pasadena. Information gathered throughout the Study will describe soil and sub-surface conditions and will determine the feasibility of building a tunnel to complete SR-710. This study is not an environmental assessment.
This Tuesday, April 28th, at 6:30 pm is a community meeting with the SR-710 Tunnel Technical Study Outreach Team. All members of the community are strongly encouraged to attend to voice concerns or simply learn more about what is going on.
The meeting will be at Blair High School Cafeteria, 1201 S. Marengo Avenue, Pasadena 91106.
