710 Freeway Extension Public Hearing

   PASADENA (CNS) - At the first public hearing on closing the gap on the
Long Beach (710) Freeway into Pasadena, most speakers favored building a tunnel
and opposed a light rail system, according to the Pasadena Star-News.
   Caltrans and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation
Authority have been studying different ways to move traffic between Valley
Boulevard in Alhambra and Pasadena. A Draft Environmental Impact Report /
Environmental Impact Statement considers five options: a no-build option, a
traffic management system that would upgrade streets and sync traffic lights, a
busway, a light rail line that would connect East Los Angeles and Pasadena and
a freeway tunnel.
   Most of the 51 speakers at the public hearing on Saturday favored
continuing the freeway with a tunnel under El Sereno, Alhambra, South Pasadena
and Pasadena, according to the Pasadena Star-News.
