Metro Gold Line extension breaks ground

ARCADIA, Calif. When completed in 2014, the $690 million project will extend the line just over 11 miles.

The new extension will run from Pasadena through Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa.

Developers are also planning to build a number of new residential and commercial developments along the new route.

The /*Gold Line*/ extension is the first project funded by /*Measure R*/, which was passed by voters in 2008.
