The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority Board of Directors has approved an updated workplan and schedule for the 12.3-mile, six- station Foothill Gold Line light rail extension from Glendora to Montclair, the board said Thursday.

The schedule assumes ground-breaking on the extension will begin in October and be completed in late-2025 to early-2026, based on detailed reviews completed late last year, authority CEO Habib F. Balian said.

“It is really two major projects in one – the freight and Metrolink relocation/reconstruction will have to be completed first, followed by construction of the light rail system,” he said.

The previously approved schedule, approved in 2015, had estimated completion in 2023.
