The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority (also known as the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority) is an independent transportation planning, design and construction agency created in 1998 by the California State Legislature, SB 1847 (later updated in 2011-AB706 and 2012-AB1600). The agency was created to immediately resume design, contracting and construction of the Los Angeles to Pasadena Metro Gold Line (formerly the Pasadena Blue Line) which had been suspended by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) earlier that same year.
The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority (Foothill Gold Line) is governed by an eight-member Board of Directors. In addition, cities from South Pasadena to Ontario are represented on two additional boards to the Construction Authority--the Joint Powers Authority (comprised of elected official representatives appointed by each corridor city) and Technical Advisory Committee (comprised of city managers or their staff appointees).
The Foothill Gold Line will continue the Gold Line light rail line from its current terminus in East Pasadena through the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale, Azusa, Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair.
