CALTRANS NEWS RELEASE

District: 7/Los Angeles and Ventura counties
Phone: (213) 897-9372
BURBANK — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) advises motorists that the southbound side of Interstate 5 in Burbank will have only one or two lanes open for traffic from 10 p.m. today (Friday, Jan. 24) to 5 a.m. Monday (Jan. 27) due to pavement construction.
Drivers are advised to use alternative routes to avoid expected congestion and delays on southbound I-5 this weekend. A recommended detour is south on State Route 170 (Hollywood Freeway), then east on State Route 134 (Ventura Freeway) to rejoin I-5 south of the construction zone.
Southbound I-5 will be reduced to two lanes between Burbank Boulevard and Verdugo Avenue during the entire weekend, and reduced to only one lane on Saturday from 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m. and again on Monday from 12:01 a.m. to 4 a.m.
All southbound lanes will open by 5 a.m. Monday. Northbound lanes will not be closed.
Southbound I-5 on-ramps at Empire Avenue, Burbank Boulevard and Verdugo Avenue/Front Street also will be closed this weekend. Detours are provided.
Planned closures of lanes and ramps in this area of southbound I-5 are scheduled again on Jan. 31-Feb. 3, Feb. 7-10 and Feb. 21-24. The schedule is weather-permitting and all dates and times are subject to change.
