With two strikes of the ceremonial golden hammer by the track crew foreman Elias Avila, the final e-clip was installed on Saturday, October 18, 2014. Once in place, this final action completed all 28 miles of light rail track needed for the Foothill Gold Line light rail project from Pasadena to Azusa.

More than 300 residents, project stakeholders, elected officials and members of the media were in attendance at the event, which was held next to the future Azusa Downtown Station in Azusa. All witnessed the historic moment when the track was fully completed, connecting the cities of Pasadena, Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa by way of the new light rail line.

Federal, state, county, and local officials from throughout the corridor cities attended the event. Speaking about the importance of this project milestone were Congress Members Grace Napolitano and Judy Chu; State Senator Norma Torres; State Assembly Member Roger Hernandez; County Supervisor Michael Antonovich; Construction Authority Board Members Doug Tessitor (Glendora Council Member), Sam Pedroza (Claremont Council Member), and John Fasana (Duarte Council Member); Azusa Mayor Joseph Rocha and Council Member Uriel Macias. Mayors and Council Members from all of the project’s corridor cities, along with other Construction Authority board members, were present for this memorable occasion.
