Monrovia Approved for Metro Maintenance Yard

The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority Board of Directors yesterday certified a supplemental environmental impact report (EIR) approving a 25-acre maintenance and operations facility in Monrovia, new parking locations at the Monrovia and Irwindale stations, reconfiguration of the intersection of Mountain Avenue and Duarte Road and replacement of two bridges.
The plan is for the maintenance and operations facility to be located in Monrovia between Evergreen Avenue on the north, Shamrock Avenue on the east, California Avenue on the west and Duarte Road on the south.
Habib F. Balian, CEO of the Construction Authority, said that approval of the supplemental EIR "is an important step in our process to ready the Foothill Extension Pasadena to Azusa for final design and construction."
The extension from Pasadena to Azusa, which includes adding six new stations, should be finished by late 2014.
