Leland Way Streetscape Project
As you know, the City has been working with the residents along Leland Way to develop landscaping alternatives to mitigate the impacts of the newly constructed soundwall for the I-5 Project. Thank you for your input, as we believe we have incorporated all of your comments and concerns regarding improving aesthetics, preserving parking, maintaining safety, discouraging loitering, maintaining and calming traffic circulation, reducing speeding, and providing walking and bicycling amenities for you and your neighbors. At this meeting, staff will be requesting City Council’s approval of the proposed roadway configuration and one-way street designation so that the design for the project can be finalized. Staff is continuing to finalize the landscaping plans for the Project and is looking forward to presenting the finalized landscape plans for your input in the near future.
You are invited to attend an upcoming City Council Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held in City Council Chambers in City Hall at 275 E. Olive Avenue in Burbank.
If you have any questions, please contact Project Manager, Roy Choi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
About the Project
The Leland Way Streetscape Project seeks to provide landscape options for the Burbank Western Channel Cap and Sound Wall Reconstruction Along Leland Way that is part of the Caltrans Interstate 5 Project.
The City currently has an agreement with Stantec Consulting Services Inc. to create landscape design and engineering plans that include potential roadway reconfiguration and possible landscape treatments that could include installation of vines, shrubs and trees along the Channel Cap and sound wall. The purpose of the landscaping is to improve the aesthetics of the Caltrans sound wall and mitigate impacts to nearby residents.
