The state of California has a pot of money for infrastructure projects, and LA Metro has its hand in it.
The transit agency is asking the state legislature for $16.5 billion of a $46 billion state budget surplus. Some of the money would be used for the Foothill Extension of the Metro Gold (L) Line. It is expected to cost $670 million to connect Pomona to Claremont. The line would be the first linking Los Angeles County with San Bernardino County, and would extend LA Metro’s longest light-rail trolley, which currently sits at 31 miles from East Los Angeles to Azusa, another 3.3 miles.
