Engineering plans for a 12.3-mile extension of the Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair were approved by the train construction authority’s board of directors and were released for public review Friday.

The 700-page document — completed after two years at a cost $15 million — outlines the alignment of two new light-rail tracks, plus the location and design of six future stations and parking facilities, 24 grade-separation bridges and 24 street crossings.

Six cities on the route: Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair have 60 days to comment on the preliminary plans. Regional transportation agencies, including the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), also will send comments.

“It is a huge milestone. You can’t go into procurement unless you have this document to put before a contractor,” explained Habib Balian, chief executive officer of the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority.
