Foothill Gold Line - Fall 2017 Update
In June, the Los Angeles County Metro Board of Directors approved the Funding Agreement (FA) and Master Cooperative Agreement (MCA) for the Foothill Gold Line light rail project from Glendora to Montclair – making the project the first Measure M rail project to move forward.
The 12.3-mile extension of the Metro Gold Line system, will include six new stations, including one in the City of Montclair (see artist rendering below). The FA and MCA lay the framework for $1.4 billion to be available to complete the Los Angeles County portion of the project (from Glendora to Claremont), and the roles and responsibilities of the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority (Construction Authority) and Metro as partners to complete the line in the coming years. The Construction Authority continues to work with San Bernardino County to fully fund the portion of the project from Claremont to Montclair.

With this major milestone achieved, the Glendora to Montclair project will break ground in October 2017 and is anticipated to reach substantial completion in 2026. After groundbreaking, the first two years of the project will be spent relocating utilities, conducting pre-construction activities, finalizing engineering and hiring a design-build contractor. A contractor is anticipated to be hired in late-2018 and major construction is not anticipated to start until late-2019.

Foothill Gold Line – Summer 2017 Project Status Memo
The Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair is a 12.3-mile extension of the Metro Gold Line light rail system that currently runs between Los Angeles and the City of Azusa, along the Foothills of the San Gabriel Valley. The extension is part of the growing network of rail lines being built throughout Los Angeles County, and will add new Gold Line stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. Once completed, a trip from Montclair to Pasadena will take approximately 38 minutes and further to downtown Los Angeles will take approximately 67 minutes.
The Glendora to Montclair project will break ground in October 2017 and take nine years to complete. It is being funded by Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. The portion of the project within Los Angeles County (Glendora to Claremont) is being funded mostly by Metro’s Measure M half-cent sales tax that was approved by voters in November 2016 and went into effect on July 1, 2017 (additional funds are coming from Measure R). The portion from Claremont to Montclair is being funded by San Bernardino County.
