*UPDATE 6/12/24: Please be advised the street re-paving and partial street closures in the Media District have been rescheduled for June 13-26, barring any unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions.

NOTICE: Be advised of street re-paving and partial street closures in the Media District from June 13-26*, excluding June 19th. Please note, the project timeline is subject to change pending any unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions.

Here's What You Need to Know

Burbank Water and Power has completed the bulk of the underground electrical conduit construction necessary for the rebuilding of the substation at 228 S Naomi Street and will now begin repaving the streets affected. There will be temporary lane restrictions beginning June 13, 2024.

Paving will be followed by striping, installation of traffic detection loops at intersections, and related activities. PAVECO will perform the work, and customers will see “no parking” signs posted as needed. Please see the attached map of the affected areas. The repaving project’s working hours will be: Monday through Friday 7:00AM to 7:00PM. Partial Street Closures from 8:30AM-3:00PM.

The Underground Construction Project will involve repaving trench cuts in the street using grinding, milling, and paving machines, street sweepers, and material transfer vehicles. Some work may take up to seven days to complete.

A Carefully Developed, City Approved Traffic Plan Will be Used

The plan will help keep traffic flowing around the construction area. Informative signs, traffic cones and traffic guards will be used as necessary to minimize the day-to-day impact. Speeds will be reduced in the area of construction.

As work progresses, “No Parking” signs will be placed around the area of construction to assist with traffic flow. These signs will be posted a minimum of 48 hours in advance.

Keeping the Area Clean is a Priority

Our contractor will use necessary dust control and street cleanup as needed to keep the job site and the City streets clean.

Noise May be Heard During the Construction Working Hours

This type of construction requires the use of heavy machinery, which can be noisy. We understand this may be a concern and will do our best to limit this noise to the construction working hours of 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

BWP Does Not Need Access to Your Property

Our work will mainly take place in the street. If access to your property is needed for any reason, our crews will coordinate access in advance. Access to your driveway may be temporarily blocked for short durations. When this happens, you will be notified and work will not begin until scheduling is coordinated with you.
