SIDEWALK REPAIR PROJECT - SECTIONS 3 & 18
In November 2017, Public Works began the Sidewalk Repair Project in south-central and north-central portions of Burbank (click here for map of area outlines). This project will remove and reconstruct damaged curbs, gutters, sidewalks, driveways, and pedestrian ramps in these areas. The project will also facilitate the removal and replacement of 35 trees on Magnolia Boulevard between the I-5 Freeway and Clybourn Avenue with remedial concrete repair.
The project is expected to be complete by July 2018. For more information, please contact the project manager, John Molinar at (818) 238-3800.
AT&T CONDUIT RELOCATION
AT&T is relocating a major conduit system in downtown Burbank along Orange Grove and Front Street to allow for Caltrans to reconstruct the Burbank Boulevard bridge crossing the I-5 Freeway. Conduit relocation work is now complete and the Final Phase is currently underway. Normal work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Due to job site conditions, work hours may vary from the normal schedule.
Update/Final Phase: AT&T has completed 81% of the cable installation. Upon completion of the cable system, AT&T will splice approximately 20 large fiber and copper cables in order to transfer the working services of all customers, residents, and businesses to the new cable system (approximately 20 thousand splices). Delays have occurred due to the lack of material availability by the demand of natural disasters. AT&T is working diligently and as quickly as possible to have crews complete the project, including street restoration, in time for the upcoming Burbank Boulevard bridge improvements (Fall 2018). To maintain public safety, traffic control will remain intact in order for crews to safely access maintenance holes for splicing. For additional project information, please contact the Public Works project manager, Ricardo Sanchez at (818) 238-3954.
SAN FERNANDO BOULEVARD/BURBANK BOULEVARD INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT
This project will widen portions of the intersection to provide a second right turn lane from southbound San Fernando Boulevard to Burbank Boulevard. The modification will improve the traffic capacity of the intersection. Pedestrian and bus stop improvements are also included in this project funded by Measure R. The construction phase began in May 2018 and is estimated to be completed by August 2018. For additional information, please contact the Public Works project manager, Ricardo Sanchez at (818) 238-3915.
NORTH SAN FERNANDO BOULEVARD SAFETY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
In December 2017, Public Works began construction on N. San Fernando Boulevard to improve safety. The project will install sidewalk bulbouts at Amherst Drive, Andover Drive, East Avenue, and Scott Road, upgrade traffic signals at Scott/Amherst/San Fernando and Delaware/San Fernando, and install bicycle lanes between Grismer Avenue and Walnut Avenue. Various locations adjacent to these intersections will be temporarily closed for construction work. The project is funded by a federal grant and is anticipated to be completed by July 2018. For additional information, please contact the Public Works project manager, Vikki Davtian at (818) 238-3915.
