The Project includes a 12.3-mile extension of the Metro Gold Line light rail line from APU/Citrus College Station in Azusa to Montclair, and the Construction Authority proposes to modify the existing approved Project (2013 FEIR as addended). Proposed Project Modifications include construction and operation of the Project in four construction phases (see map below), rather than two phases; relocating the future parking facility at the Pomona Station from the north side of the station to the south side; and implementing a new mitigation measure that would widen White Avenue near the La Verne Station (from 1st Street to 6th Street in La Verne).

The Draft SEIR has concluded that one new significant unmitigable traffic impact will occur as a result of the proposed changes to the project, at the intersection of Glendora Avenue/Route 66. All other impacts have been mitigated to less than significant levels.
