Rendering of a bus-only lane for a BRT line on Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock

A rendering of a possible bus-only lane on Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock.

Eagle Rock -- Metro planners are moving forward to create what's called a "bus rapid corridor" or BRT between Pasadena and North Hollywood. That BRT -- which would feature dedicated bus lanes in many areas-- would also run down Eagle Rock's main drag: Colorado Boulevard. 

Pasadena's mayor was able to have BRT lanes dropped from a section of Colorado in that city. Now, many in Eagle Rock also want to exclude their stretch of Colorado.

The Boulevard Sentinel reports that the majority of the 150 people who turned out at a recent meeting opposed putting BRT lanes on Colorado, preferring instead to reroute the bus line to the 134 Freeway. Residents opposed to the dedicated bus-lane on Colorado have set up a website and circulated a petition, said the Daily News.
