About the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority
The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority is an independent transportation planning and construction agency created in 1999 by the California State Legislature. Its purpose is to extend the Metro Gold Line from Union Station to the Los Angeles County Line. The Metro Gold Line light rail line opened in 2003, connecting downtown Los Angeles and Pasadena. Los Angeles County's Measure R half-cent sales tax increase is fully funding the 11.5-mile Foothill Extension project, from Pasadena to Azusa. The Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Azusa broke ground in June 2010, and will be completed in late 2014. Three design-build contracts, totaling more than $500 million will be awarded to complete this effort. Future extensions are also planned.
