The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority hosts an open-house meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday about the study of the so-called 710 Gap. Metro and Caltrans are engaged in a three-year environmental study of alternatives for connecting the Long Beach (710) Freeway to the Foothill (210) Freeway, including a possible 4.5-mile freeway or tunnel connection, improved rail, and mass-transit alternatives.
The meeting takes place in the auditorium at La Cañada High School, 4463 Oak Grove Drive. A similar meeting will take place at the South Pasadena Library at 6 p.m. on May 23.
