Gold Line construction underway

A worker puts some of the finishing touches on a shelter at the newly constructed Foothill Gold Line station at Arrow Highway and E Street, just east of the University of La Verne campus. The Foothill Gold Line is a 12.3-mile extension of the Metro A Line light rail system, with new stations being built in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. Once completed in January, it will connect the San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire to Los Angeles and Long Beach. / photo by Abelina J. Nuñez

When the new line opens in January, the estimated travel time from La Verne to Pasadena will be around 31 minutes, and it will take approximately 60 minutes to reach downtown Los Angeles. / photo by Abelina J.
