- SR - 710 Study Thank you for your engagement with the SR 710 North Study. All five alternatives under review by the Study Team seek to improve connectivity to key destinations located throughout the Study Area and reduce cut-through traffic on local streets thereby reducing congestion.
- SR - 710 Study The SR 710 Study is analyzing five alternatives including the freeway tunnel option. To learn more about the Study’s purpose, need, and performance criteria, please visit http://www.metro.net/projects/sr-710-conversations/
With the SR-710 North Study underway, we’re closer than ever to shaping the future of transportation and mobility in your community. After years of gridlock and discussion, two-thirds of Los Angeles County voters approved the passage of Measure R in 2008. As a result, Metro is in a position to addre...
- Peggy Tyarks Drouet Are people really going to drive from Long Beach or Alhambra to eat at Senior Fish in South Pasadena? Why wouldn't people from Alhambra or Long Beach eat instead at the Senior Fish in Alhambra? Don't people usually eat at the branch of a chain restaurant that is closest to them? If I want to go to Senior Fish, I would go to the one in South Pasadena, the one closest to my home. I wouldn't take the Gold Line to Little Tokyo to eat at the Senior Fish there. Or drive to Alhambra to go to the Senior Fish there. What does this have to do with connectivity to key destinations (Senior Fish is definitely not a key destination) or to reducing cut-through traffic on local streets, as if people from Alhambra chose to go to Senior Fish in South Pasadena or vice versa, they would be adding to and not reducing cut-through traffic? If anyone took a 710 tunnel to the Senior Fish in South Pasadena, they would then be clogging the streets in Pasadena to get there.
- SR - 710 Study All five alternatives under review by the Study Team seek to improve connectivity to key destinations located throughout the Study Area and reduce cut-through traffic on local streets thereby reducing congestion. This would give many the opportunity to explore cities that would not have been as easily accessible.How did "the opportunity to explore cities" and an easier trip to Senior Fish (a fast food Mexican restaurant) become goals of the SR - 710 Study? I say to the Moderator of the SR - 710 Study Facebook page: Get a Life! If you want to explore a city, you just get in your car and go (or take public transportation if it is available) and you don't make a big deal out of possible congestion along the way. Either the sights you will be seeing or the restaurants you will be eating at are worth the trip or not. We in West Pasadena make the congested trip to Arcadia on the 210 Freeway when we want to eat dinner at one of their restaurants, a trip that will become more congested if the 710 tunnel is built as it will add more traffic to the 210. Simply said: reduction of north-south congestion by building the 710 Tunnel will increase east-west congestion--not the way to go Metro.
