The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension is extending the existing Gold Line east from Pasadena to Montclair. The first phase (Phase 2A) will travel more than 11 miles from the Sierra Madre Villa Station, with stations in the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa.

The Foothill Extension Construction Authority began construction of Phase 2A in the summer of 2011 and is expected to be completed in September 2015. Metro is scheduled to begin safety testing in late 2015 with a projected opening in 2016.

Phase 2A includes new stations at:

  • Arcadia
  • Monrovia
  • Duarte/City of Hope
  • Irwindale
  • Azusa Downtown
  • APU/Citrus College

The second phase (Phase 2B) will continue for over 12 miles from Azusa, with stops in the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. Funding is currently being sought for Phase 2B. The Phase 2B Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement was certified in March 2013 and preliminary engineering is scheduled to begin in Summer 2014.
