During 2006-7, the Construction Authority worked with the City of Irwindale (along with all other Phase 2A and 2B cities) to explore their vision for integrating transit oriented development (TOD) into their future planning. As the Construction Authority and city begin a new dialogue through the 2010 TOD study just underway, new information will be added to this site.

In the heart of the San Gabriel Valley, just 20 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles, Irwindale is a spacious, vibrant and thriving business community. It is situated in the midst of one of the world's most productive regions and bounded by the 210 (Foothill) and 605 (San Gabriel) freeways. Due in large part to its ease of access, Irwindale is the home to over 700 businesses, including major satellite offices and headquarters for some of the most well-known companies in the nation, including Ready Pac Produce, Miller Brewing and Charter Communications.
The City is known as "Jardin de Roca," Spanish for "Garden of Rocks" because of the high quality of rock and gravel found there. Almost every highway in the State of California, and many highways west of the Mississippi River, have Irwindale rock as part of their foundation.

About the Artist
Robin Brailsford of Brailsford Public Art believes her role as a public artist is "to discover the potential in people places and things, and then to realize that potential." To that end she is the inventor and patent holder of a brand new public art technique, LithoMosaic, where vast mosaics are cast within monolithic concrete pours. Currently BPA is finishing an urban centerpiece for the City of Lemon Grove utilizing LithoMosaic, alternative energy, and all things "Pioneer Modern". BPA specializes in transit oriented public art - Long Beach, Santa Monica, Phoenix. Robin has recently built a superb studio on the US/Mexican border with her partner Wick Alexander, a few dogs, assorted bob cats and roadrunners, and a host of owls, for the exploration of ideas Situationist and Structuralist.

Drawing on the city's rich heritage, the artistry of the new station will celebrate and honor the entrepreneurial spirit of the current businesses, citizens and heirs of the original Pioneros de la Rivera de San Gabriel.”
Robin’s vision for the platform involves bold carpets of rustic terrazzo inset with brilliantly colored mosaics (symbolizing the abstract family tree) and an alluvial fan. The names of the early citizens will cast in light and shadow onto the station platform. Using every letter from these names, an original song, or corrido, will be composed based on historical documents and placed into the rustic terrazzo concrete platform. The rustic terrazzo technique exhibited here is one Ms. Brailsford developed exclusively for the Metro Gold Line project, and she now has a patent pending for the process - Litho-Mosaic.
