Governor Brown signs bill, ends 710 Freeway street plan

A big victory for Southern California communities that have been fighting to block the extension of the 710 Freeway: South Pasadena is celebrating after Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill sealing the fate of the freeway surface extension plan.

Nearly 600 homes owned by Caltrans along the proposed 710 Corridor Project will soon be up for sale, expedited by a bill the governor signed. The bill also ensures the original surface-street project is dead. It's a win-win for those who oppose the freeway extension.

"This 710 has been a problem since the first time I was governor. So hopefully before I have to run again we'll get it solved," said Brown Tuesday of the ongoing 60-year battle.

South Pasadena neighbors say they are glad the homes in question will be returned to private ownership and the state will be getting some much-needed revenue.

1. Good news!

I've lived in So. Pas since '76 and born in Pasadena. I'm afraid this battle will continue for my entire existence, lol!

2. I recall some sad stories.

 

Some olde California families were forced out; compensation for a house does not compensate for loss of a family home. Shame.

4. How about making them into affordable housing?

 

L.A. needs it almost as much as we do here in the Bay.

It should, but it won't. I have such a love/hate relationship with this town.

7. The 710 Tunnel is also a disaster

 

Metro wants to dump 710 port traffic onto the 210 Freeway. An environmental disaster for those living in the San Gabriel Valley
