Proposed improvements may include but are not limited to:
- Reconstructing Interstate 710, much of which was initially constructed in the 1950s and 1960s
- Upgrading the freeway to modern Interstate Highway standards
- Adding capacity to Interstate 710 to accommodate increased truck traffic and to extend design life
- Separating truck and auto traffic
- Revising older interchange and merge designs
This corridor is partially funded through a variety of funding sources. It is not fully funded, and aspects of the planned upgrade of the corridor are controversial, especially given the proximity of the Los Angeles River and residences.

In addition, Interstate 710 is located close to Alameda Corridor (High Priority Corridor 22) and Alameda Corridor East (High Priority Corridor 34).
Interstate 710 North
Corridor 46 does not include the proposed extension of Interstate 710 into South Pasadena and Pasadena. This controversial freeway extension north of Interstate 10 still is planned for construction, but it may be built as a tunnel rather than a freeway.
