Construction Along Burbank and San Fernando Boulevards

Post Date:08/22/2018 5:27 PM

Burbank, CA (August 22, 2018) – Construction on the Burbank Boulevard at San Fernando Boulevard Intersection Improvement Project is slated to begin. The project will widen the intersection to add turn lanes, upgrade traffic signals, improve crosswalks and transit stops, replace damaged concrete, and install landscaping.

For a little over two weeks beginning Saturday, August 25 and ending Tuesday, September 11, City contractors will close the intersection in two phases to remove damaged pavement and pour new concrete.

North-South through traffic on San Fernando Boulevard will be closed, and East-West traffic on Burbank Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in each direction. During this time, Burbank residents are asked to avoid the area.

While freeway ramps at Burbank Boulevard will be open, heavy congestion is expected due to the lane closures.

Residents wishing to cross I-5 are asked to use Olive Avenue along with Magnolia and Buena Vista Boulevards as alternatives, and students travelling to Burbank High School should use Glenoaks Boulevard.

Detours will be provided via Delaware Road, Third Street, and Grinnell Drive.

Bus stops will also be closed; Metro transit riders should board buses at Magnolia Blvd and First Street.

Please take alternate routes during the time and if unavoidable, follow detour and traffic diversion signage as police officers will be enforcing safety laws in this area.
