MTA officials could give the green light on Thursday to plans for the extension of the Metro Gold Line from Pasadena to Azusa.The transportation agency's board of directors is expected to approve $690 million in funding for the project, which would include stops in Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa. The funding would come through the Measure R transportation sales tax.

If the board approves it, groundbreaking on the 11.3-mile project would happen as early as June, and the extension would begin service by 2014.
