Assemblymember Chris Holden Announces Legislation to Kill 710 Freeway Tunnel

 

Pasadena Star News, Feb. 9, 2017: Chris Holden Introduces Bill to Kill 710 Freeway Tunnel: http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/general-news/20170209/assemblyman-chris-holden-of-pasadena-introduces-bill-to-kill-710-freeway-tunnel-project

Alhambra Councilwoman Barbara Messina, who leads the 710 Coalition of cities and labor unions in support of constructing the gap-tunnel, took Holden’s announcement personally. She said she and Holden were in lock-step on the freeway completion for decades and had been friends since the early 1980s. “This really upsets me. I feel betrayed by him,” Messina said

Assembly Bill 287 establishes a local advisory committee to recommend a definitive solution for the State Route 710 corridor between the 10 and 210, but would prohibit this advisory committee from considering or recommending a freeway tunnel alternative.
