Pasadena may build overpass at Gold Line on California Blvd

Pasadenans have a love-hate relationship with the Gold Line.

They love the convenience of a train whisking them to Los Angeles from six stations throughout the Crown City. However, when the train emerges from its underground lair and crosses Del Mar Boulevard, California Boulevard and Glenarm Street at street level, the sentiments of motorists mired at the downed gates similarly take a turn.

In fact, those waiting three or more minutes or several signal cycles may curse the train as they jockey from lane to lane to find a quicker way to cross.

“As much as a I love the Gold Line, it certainly has bisected our city during rush hour,” Pasadena City Councilman Andy Wilson said. “It is part of the bigger narrative of city congestion.”
