Later this month, local residents will have the opportunity to discuss with experts and officials plans for the one 710 extension route that Metro has yet to scratch from its list: an underground tunnel that would run beneath South Pasadena and El Sereno.
During the three All Communities Convening Open House events next week, information will be shared about the five alternatives that will be carried into the Draft Environmental Impact Report/ Environmental Impact Statement for in depth environmental analysis. They include:
- Transportation System Management/Transportation Demand Management
- Bus Rapid Transit
- Light Rail Transit
- Freeway Tunnel
While several foothill cities have opposed the 710 tunnel, San Marino's City Council has been supportive of the idea.

Why Is It Important to Participate?
During these meetings, the public will learn about the multi-modal alternative concepts under evaluation in the SR-710 Study process, including, but not limited to, the “No-Build” alternative, improvements to local streets, the expansion of light rail and bus transit systems, as well as freeway options.
What is the Format of these Meetings?
Locals are invited to attend any of the Open Houses to learn more about the SR 710 Study and the five alternatives under review, to engage directly with members of the Study Team, and have questions answered.
There will be a video presentation that will run throughout each open house. Members of the public are encouraged to visit information stations at their own pace to learn about the project need, the alternatives analysis screening and environmental review processes, and the five alternatives that will be considered in the EIR/S. Information shared at each meeting will be identical.
