The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is initiating a draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance project pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Virtual Scoping Meetings will be held on Wednesday, February 24 and Saturday, February 27 to gather public input on the project.
The virtual meetings are being held to solicit comments from the public on the scope and content of the draft EIR and potential environmental effects from the project. The formal scoping comment period runs through March 15, 2021.
The C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance project is studying light rail transit options between the existing Redondo Beach Station and the under-construction Torrance Transit Center. Trains from both the Metro C Line (Green) and the future Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project may run on this new extension. Metro is hosting virtual public scoping meetings to accept both written and oral comments on the scope of the draft EIR.

The C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance project aims to:
-Improve mobility in the South Bay by introducing frequent, reliable transit service to meet growing transportation needs.
-Provide more direct transit connections from the South Bay to the A Line (Blue), E Line (Expo) and regional destinations.
-Provide an alternative mode of transportation for commuters currently using congested arterials and I-405 in the project study area.
-Improve transit accessibility for South Bay community residents.
-Reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions by making transit a more viable transportation choice.
Written and oral comments will be accepted at the virtual public scoping meetings or they may be sent to Dolores Roybal Saltarelli, Project Manager, Metro, One Gateway Plaza, Mail Stop: 99-22-4, Los Angeles, CA 90012, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The project is funded by the Measure R and Measure M sales taxes approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008 and 2016, respectively.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is currently providing lifeline service for essential trips and frontline workers. Metro continues building the most ambitious transportation infrastructure program in the United States and is working to greatly improve mobility through its Vision 2028 Plan.
Metro has proudly pledged to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Health and Safety Commitment Program to help ensure the safe return of transit riders as the U.S. recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
