• Pasadena to Azusa Update


    The FTC (Foothill Transit Constructors – a Kiewit Parsons Joint Venture) team has made significant progress on the design for the 11.5-mile light rail extension. Nearly all of the packages have been approved for construction, and FTC is on schedule to have the design substantially complete this coming month.

    Construction continues to result in street closures and other impactful activities.

    Below is a highlight of some of the construction activities now underway:
