A $2.1 million program to synchronize lights in Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Torrance has been completed, L.A. County Supervisor Don Knabe announced today.

As part of the County's Traffic Signal Synchronization Program to enhance traffic flow, long-swaths of three streets should have better coordinated timing of signals. Those streets are Anita Street/190th Street/Victoria Avenue from Pacific Coast Highway to Wilmington Avenue; Normandie Avenue from El Segundo Boulevard to 170th Street; and on Torrance Boulevard from Pacific Coast Highway to Main Street.

In all, the county's Traffic Signal Synchronization Program has synchronized over 2,300 intersections on 81 routes to date, which officials say has reduced travel times by as much as 29 percent (if true, that's a good chunk of time!)
