Foothill Gold Line
The Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair is a 12.3-mile extension of the Metro Gold Line light rail system. The project will add new Gold Line stations in the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair - and may be built in phases.
The project broke ground in December 2017 and has completed two of four contracts. In August 2019, the Construction Authority Board of Directors awarded the main design-build contract to Kiewit-Parsons, a Joint Venture. Major construction will begin in 2020 and take five years to complete to Pomona (eight years to Montclair if additional funds are secured by September 2021).
The project is being funded by Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties and the State of California. The portion of the project within Los Angeles County is being funded mostly by LA Metro’s sales tax measures (Measure M and R); San Bernardino County is funding the majority of the portion in their county. The project also received a nearly $300 million greenhouse gas reduction grant from the State of California to be used in both counties.
