City officials to study draft EIR for SR-710 north study

City officials plan to review the draft environmental impact report for the SR-710 Study, released Friday by Caltrans and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro).

The draft environmental document examines five possible alternatives for the project, which could impact the city of San Gabriel. The city will study the report and staff plans to present information on its contents to the City Council for review. The city also plans to host a community event on the issue to inform residents about the potential project options.

"We have been looking forward the release of the draft environmental impact report for the SR-710 North project," Public Works Director Daren Grilley said. "We are eager to see what information, analysis and recommendations are contained in the document."

Metro will accept public comments on the document for 120 days. Metro will also host public hearings at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 11 at East Los Angeles College, Rosco Ingalls Auditorium, 1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez, Monterey Park, and at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 14 at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 E Green Street, Pasadena. Metro has planned a third public hearing but has not confirmed a date or location. Metro plans to release a final version of the EIR, with a preferred alternative, in 2016.
