REGULAR BOARD MEETING
MAY 25, 2017

Preamble
Motion by:

FASANA, BARGER, SOLIS, GARCETTI and NAJARIAN

May 25, 2017

Relating to Item 29; File ID 2017-0097: SR-710 North

The Expenditure Plan for Measure R, approved by voters in 2008, included $780 million assigned to the San Gabriel Valley sub-region for the SR-710 North project, under the Highway Capital Subfund.

The new Measure R and Government Code 54237.7 projects, described in this motion, that are not included in the environmental document will undergo their own environmental process and clearance as necessary.

B. ALLOCATE $105 million of Measure R funds available for the "Interstate 710 North Gap Closure (tunnel) Project" for development and implemen...
