May 2017 Board Action

While the analysis of the Draft EIR/EIS identifies the Single Bore Freeway Tunnel with tolls and truck restriction as the Alternative that best addresses the Project’s purpose and need and performance measures, the Metro Board of Directors adopted the TSM/TDM Alternative as the Locally Preferred Alternative at the Meeting on May 25, 2017.  The Board also adopted a Motion that reallocates the remaining Measure R funds to projects that will relieve congestion resulting from the SR 710 gap in the transportation system within the SR-710 North Study Area with priority to projects that are proximate to Interstate 10.

Other non-Measure R funds, including those under the SR 710 Rehabilitation Account (funds that are derived from the sale of Caltrans-owned homes along the corridor) will be used for projects located in Pasadena, South Pasadena, Alhambra, La Cañada-Flintridge, El Sereno (90032 zip code) in the City of Los Angeles as prescribed by State Law ( Government Code 54237.7) . Still other state and federal funds that were originally allocated to the SR 710 North Project have been directed toward projects in the City of Los Angeles (central subregion) and Unincorporated East Los Angeles.
