Foothill Gold Line Dedicates First of Six Stations

The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority in Los Angeles recently held a dedication ceremony for the Duarte/City of Hope Station, the first in a series of celebrations marking the substantial completion of construction for the six-station, 11.5-mile light rail project from Pasadena to Azusa.

Dedication ceremonies for the remaining stations will occur in the coming weeks. Speakers at the event included Los Angeles Metro Chief Executive Officer ­Phillip Washington, Habib F. Balian, chief executive officer of the construction authority, Rep. Grace Napolitano (D-CA) and state and local officials.

The Foothill Gold Line project will be turned over to Metro for pre-revenue service in late September 2015, with passenger service projected to begin next year.

“It is an honor to be here to thank so many of you here today who ­lobbied and rallied in support of this project for over a decade and for the men and women who safely built this project on time and on budget,” Habib said. “This tremendous success is due in part to the grassroots support for this project and the partnership between the Foothill Gold Line cities, the Foothill Gold Line ­Construction Authority and Metro.”

The event also featured the unveiling of public art at the station, including an extensive sculpture that incorporates the city’s history and culture.

Hundreds brave the heat at the Duarte/City of Hope Station to celebrate the substantial completion of the six-station, 11.5-mile Foothill Gold Line, which ultimately will connect Pasadena and Azusa.
