Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan

Last Thursday, the Metro board of directors approved placing a new half-cent sales tax, and an extension of the 2008-approved Measure R half-cent sales tax, on the November 2016 ballot. The proposed measure, named the "Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan," includes a multi-page expenditure plan laying out how more than $120 billion in anticipated revenues could fund nearly 100 priority projects in the first forty years, if approved by voters.

Completing the Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to the county line in Claremont would be one of the first projects to break ground under the proposed plan; allocating just over $1 billion to add new stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona and Claremont (the extension to Montclair would need to be funded separately, by San Bernardino County).

Metro is asking voters to support the taxes with no sunset date; allowing acceleration of capital construction projects (transit and highway), adding new projects, and giving back more tax revenue to the 88 local cities in the county for their use in improving transportation infrastructure.
