The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will hold a meeting in Pasadena to discuss alternatives to the proposed 710 Freeway tunnel extension on May 30.

The meeting will be the last of several forums that have been held as part of the, “Alternative Analysis phase of the SR-710 Study,” according to the  Metro website, which is aimed at “bridging the gap” in this freeway from Long Beach.

The analysis is a required part of planning the extension of the 710 freeway through a 7.1-mile tunnel, a project that has been opposed by some over concerns about pollution and traffic increases on the 210 Freeway.  

The alternative concepts, two of which are graphically represented in the attached images, include:

• Bus Rapid Transit
• Light Rail Transit
• Highways and Arterials
• Freeways
• “No Builds”
• Traffic Management

The meeting will be on May 30 from 6-8 pm at the Rose Bowl's Visitor's Locker Room.  Attendees should park in Lot F and enter through Gate A.
