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 “forms” of all three columns were also partially removed as shown in the photo below right. Crews will install the form on the second column by the end of the week.

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.
