“If you’re at all concerned [about the proposed 710 Tunnel project] I hope you’ll make it a point to go to the meeting,” Del Guercio said. The councilman has been vocal about the potential for increased truck traffic and pollution impacting La Cañada Flintridge should the 710 gap be closed.
The study underway is looking at the geotechnical feasibility of building the tunnel.
The study area includes the cities of Alhambra, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, Los Angeles, Monterey Park, San Marino, Pasadena and South Pasadena.
According to the website www.710tunnelstudy.info, the study is being done in a “route neutral” manner.
“This means all reasonable and practicable alternatives for extending the SR710 are being considered,” the website states.
La Cañada Flintridge residents who cannot attend the May 26 meeting can visit the SR-710 Study Information Office, 3412 N. Eastern Ave., Los Angeles, 90032, which is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone numbers are (323) 222-1710 and, toll free, (877) 710-4111.
