With the passage of Measure M in November 2016, which included funding for the Green Line Extension to Torrance Project (Project), Metro reinitiated the planning studies for the Project in spring 2017 with this SAA. The SAA is focused on a 4.5-mile segment of the Harbor Subdivision ROW from the existing Redondo Beach (Marine Avenue) Station to the Torrance Transit Center (TC), currently under construction by City of Torrance.

Its goal was to gain consensus on a revised Alternative(s) for presentation to and approval by the Metro Board to be carried forward in the next phase of environmental studies. Attachment A contains the Executive Summary, inclusive of goals, performance, travel and cost information.
