Attend City Council meeting about
710 freeway

Attend City Council meeting
on SR-710 alternatives

Monday August 13, 6:30 pm  


Pasadena City Council will meet on Monday, August 13 at 6:30 pm in the Pasadena Convention Center, Room 105, to discuss Metro's plans to complete the 710 freeway.


The WPRA encourages you to attend, either as a speaker or simply to support your neighbors!


Background: Metro and Caltrans are considering 12 alternatives for closing the gap in the 710 freeway between Alhambra and Pasadena. 

  • Three of the alternatives [F-5, F-6 and H-2 in the current planning documents (Click here or go to wpra.net to see diagrams)] would devastate well-established and historically protected residential neighborhoods and landmarks.
  • A fourth alternative [F-7] is so vague that we cannot even evaluate it, but as presented, the idea of a 4.5-mile tunnel with no entrance or exit portal along the entire length causes us considerable concern. 

The 12 alternatives will be reduced to five in late October.  


Getting the outrageous Pasadena alternatives  
dropped from the list depends on you!
