The City will use $2 million in grant funds to make improvements in downtown Torrance.

In the summer of 2015, the Public Works Department applied for an Active Transportation Program grant to enhance pedestrian and bicycle conditions in the downtown Torrance area. Now with the grant approval, Public Works will focus on fixing sidewalks and making curb ramp improvements.

The next steps include planning to identify needs in the downtown area, design and then advertising the project for construction bids. They hope to receive funding in July so work can begin.
