Assemblymember Muratsuchi Announces Start of Construction on Metro Green Line Extension
(Torrance, CA) - Flanked by California Governor Jerry Brown, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Torrance Mayor Patrick Furey, Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) announced the start of construction of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Metro Green Line extension to the South Bay. It is a project paid for, in part, by $231 million in state funding. “As your state representative, I fought for and helped deliver state transportation funding to my district to extend the metro light rail service to Torrance and Redondo Beach,” said Assemblymember Muratsuchi. “This measure will cut down on traffic and provide some relief to commuters by getting more people out of their cars and on to those metro rail cars.” Here is more in this Assembly Access video.
