San Pedro, CA – Today, the Los Angeles Metro Board of Directors approved $30 million in new funding for transportation infrastructure projects across Supervisor Janice Hahn’s Fourth District.
“Today the Metro Board of Directors unanimously approved $30 million in new funding for projects in cities across my district that will reduce congestion, improve air quality, and make our streets safer,” said Supervisor Hahn. “The dollars will help fund projects in cities from Commerce to Pico Rivera to Long Beach, for initiatives that will address traffic congestion hot spots, plant new trees, improve streets and sidewalks for pedestrians and cyclists, and make freeway on- and off-ramps safer.
