I would like to highlight an event in Pasadena this coming Saturday. Metro and a community group are hosting a panel to discuss transportation. The topics include high speed rail and the 710 freeway.
The panel is called Regional Transportation 101 – Where Do We Go From Here?. Register online.
Description: “[T]he importance of transportation past and future will be discussed by regional transportation experts such as former Assemblymember Richard Katz; Metro Executive Director of Highways, Douglas Failing; Greene and Greene archivist Ann Scheid; MTA Board member Ara Najarian and Parson Brinckerhoff’s Dr. Gene Kim, among others. The public will be briefed on Measure R funding, approved by the voters for transportation projects; extension of the Gold Line light rail; Bob Hope Airport plans; and the prospect of a tunnel to complete the I-710 freeway gap closure. A 30-year transportation plan will also be presented, depicting how an intermodal transportation system would be developed to move people throughout the county and state.”
