Summary

The State Route (SR 710) Study evaluated transportation options to improve mobility and relieve congestion in the area between State Route 2, Interstates 5, 10, 210, and 605 in East/Northeast Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley. The Study considered five multi-modal alternatives. The alternatives were: 1) no build; 2) Transportation System Management/Transportation Demand Management (TSM/TDM); 3) BRT; 4) LRT; or, 5) a freeway tunnel.

MetroQuest was used online in both English and Spanish and with iPads during community meetings to educate residents and collect opinions about priorities plus the five alternatives scenarios for the improvement of this high profile corridor.
