Assembly Bill No. 29


Introduced by Assembly Member Holden
(Principal coauthors: Assembly Members Friedman and Cristina Garcia)

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 29, as amended, Holden. State Highway Route 710.

Existing

(1) Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of all state highways and associated property. Existing law designates and describes state highway routes, and also describes the state highway routes in the California freeway and expressway system, including all of Route 710 in the County of Los Angeles. Existing law requires the California Transportation Commission to relinquish to local agencies state highway portions that have been deleted from the state highway system by legislative enactment, and authorizes relinquishment in certain other cases.
This bill would remove the portion of Route 710 located north of Route 10 from the California freeway and expressway system.
The bill would require the department and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, in direct consultation and agreement with local governments of cities and communities whose jurisdiction includes Route 710, to implement projects in the SR-710 North Project Study Area and to establish the terms for the disposal of real property in the areas between the stub immediately north of the junction of Interstate 10 and Route 710 in the City of Alhambra and the current stub immediately south of Route 210 in the City of Pasadena. The bill would give the Cities of Alhambra, Pasadena, and South Pasadena the right of first refusal to acquire real property within their respective city limits after projects have been implemented according to the process described above.
This bill would authorize the commission, after projects have been agreed upon in the SR-710 North Project Study Area, as described, to relinquish to the Cities of Alhambra, Pasadena, and South Pasadena specified portions of Route 710 under conditions established through direct consultation and agreement, and upon terms and conditions the commission finds to be in the best interests of the state, if the department and the cities enter into an agreement providing for that relinquishment.
By imposing new duties on local public officials, the bill would create a state-mandated local program.

The

(2) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
