The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has unveiled four alternative routes for the Green Line light-rail extension. Also known as the South Bay extension, the project involves extending the Green Line from its current terminus at a station in Redondo Beach, California, to a new transit center in Torrance, California.Two proposed alternatives would follow Metro's existing rail right-of-way through Redondo Beach and Lawndale en route to Torrance, agency officials wrote in a blog post. The other two alternatives would run along Hawthorne Boulevard for part of the way to Torrance.This summer, Metro plans to recommend a route or routes to the agency's board. After that, the agency would resume the project's environmental studies in early 2019.Under the Measure M spending plan, the project is slated to break ground in 2025 and be completed in the 2030-2033 timeframe. The project has $891 million in funding between Measure M, Measure R and other sources. The agency will recommend a route that fits within available funding, according to Metro's blog.
