About the Project
The San Fernando Boulevard / Burbank Boulevard Intersection improvement is located just east of Interstate 5 and north of Downtown Burbank. This intersection is a major access point to and from Downtown Burbank and is an important access to Interstate 5. Improvements to this intersection are planned to provide additional vehicle turning movements and increase the operational efficiency of the intersection.
The project includes widening the intersection to provide for a second dedicated right turn lane to the southbound approach of San Fernando Boulevard at Burbank Boulevard for a total of two right turn lanes, one through lane, and one left turn lane in the southbound direction of this intersection. The improvement would also widen the west leg of the intersection to provide three westbound through lanes on Burbank Boulevard between San Fernando Boulevard and Interstate 5.
The improvement will also provide an expanded bus passenger waiting area for an existing Metro/BurbankBus stop on the north side of Burbank Boulevard west of San Fernando and various traffic signal, safety lighting, landscaping, and other improvements necessary to accommodate the new intersection geometry. Finally, the design will accommodate future planned Class II bicycle lanes on San Fernando Boulevard and a Class II/Class III bicycle facility on Burbank Boulevard.
The full cost of this project is funded through the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Measure R Arroyo Verdugo Highway Operations Improvements Project. More information can be found at www.metro.net/measurer.
