The National Trust for Historic Preservation Declares the 710 Route a National Treasure

Pasadena Heritage is thrilled with the announcement that the National Trust for Historic Preservation has declared the 710 route to be one of its critical issues and a National Treasure at Thursday Press Conference held at the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Headquarters in downtown LA.

Pasadena Heritage has opposed the 710 Freeway extension for all of its 38-years history, because the negative impacts to historic homes, neighborhoods and trees could be profound. We continue to be very concerned with this controversial issue. We very much appreciate the work that Christina Morris of the National Trust has been doing with us and with communities all along the route to assemble, coordinate, and help organize the many voices who are seeking better transportation solutions!
