The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority celebrated 50% construction completion of the 9.1 mile, four-station, light rail project between Glendora, CA and Pomona, CA, connecting Los Angeles County with the Inland Empire. A gathering of dignitaries (pictured) in San Dimas, CA marked the milestone on June 17th.
“It is a great achievement for our team, our contractor and the entire County of Los Angeles to have been able to keep this important regional infrastructure project on schedule during the pandemic” said Foothill Gold Line Chairman and Claremont Mayor Pro Team Ed Reece.
The design-build team of Kiewit-Parsons, a Joint Venture (KPJV), has expended over 1 million work hours designing and constructing various elements of the project. So far, KPJV has completed 91% of at grade crossings, 43% of rail tracks and 13% of four new stations.
When completed, the Foothill Gold Line will add new stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne and Pomona and increase ridership by an estimated 11,600 boardings a day.
