Gold Line bridge columns

The first of the three main bridge columns for the Gold Line Foothill Extension light rail bridge from the median of the I-210 freeway across the eastbound lanes into Arcadia was poured earlier this month.

The $18.6 million “iconic bridge” is scheduled for completion in mid-2012, and is the first major piece of the 11.5-mile $486 million extension from east Pasadena to Azusa slated for completion in 2015.

Other major elements in Arcadia will be a new bridge is to be built over Santa Anita Avenue, and a new train station and transit center is to be built at First Avenue and Santa Clara.
