I Did Not Know That
I read the following on the City of South Pasadena web site:
A short unsigned freeway stub [of the planned 710] exists in Pasadena, heading south from the interchange of Interstate 210 and State Route 134 to California Boulevard. The section in-between has not been built. The original plans for that section ran parallel to Atlantic Boulevard in Alhambra and Los Robles Avenue in San Marino and Pasadena. Opposition to this route by Alhambra and San Marino resulted in a routing that skirted Alhambra to the west and bisected South Pasadena. Subsequent opposition to the rerouted project by residents of South Pasadena and the Los Angeles district of El Sereno, and the resulting litigation have prevented Caltrans from completing the northernmost leg of the route.I didn't know that about the history of the 710. I've only heard complaints from people in Alhambra and other neighboring hamlets about the selfishness of South Pasadena for opposing the 710 passing through the city. Sounds like Alhambra had that idea first.
