Pasadena, Alhambra move forward on obtaining twin 710 Freeway stubs from Caltrans (SB7 & AB29)

With state legislation proposed that could remove the 710 Freeway extension from future consideration, Alhambra and Pasadena are making preparations for what could happen to the almost-100 acres of land comprising the loose freeway ends.

State Sen. Anthony Portantino’s Senate Bill 7 would permanently prevent a freeway tunnel, surface freeway or expressway from being built to connect the 710 between the 10 and 210 freeways. Assemblyman Chris Holden’s Assembly Bill 29 would remove that stretch of the 710 from the state freeway and expressway system, marking its permanent northbound endpoint at the 10.
