Caltrans Traffic Advisory: Overnight Closures of I-5 Ramps in Burbank and Sun Valley Area of Los Angeles

For Immediate Release - Traffic Advisory

Some On- and Off-Ramps to be Closed at Night for Pavement Construction

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 17, 2023) — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) advises motorists to expect overnight closures of some Interstate 5 on-ramps and off-ramps in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles and Burbank starting tonight (May 17) and continuing through mid-summer.

Crews are repairing and constructing asphalt pavement at multiple on- and off-ramps on I-5.

This week and next week, motorists may experience intermittent overnight closures at on- and off-ramps on northbound or southbound I-5 at Buena Vista Street, Hollywood Way, Sunland Boulevard, Tuxford Street, Lankershim Boulevard and Sheldon Street. 

Detours will be provided where ramps are closed. Crews will start closing ramps at 7 p.m. and will reopen all ramps by 6 a.m. each day.

This Caltrans project includes repaving the shoulders of the freeway, replacement of individual concrete slabs on the freeway, and installation of more than 136,000 linear feet of high-visibility 6-inch-wide lane striping.

These repairs and upgrades are intended to increase the service life of the roadway and improve ride quality for travelers. The contractor on the $8.3 million project is C.A. Rasmussen Inc. of Valencia.

During the project, the Southbound I-5 Penrose Street off- and on-ramps may be closed intermittently due to an adjacent staging area for construction crews. Caltrans reminds motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert” and “Slow For The Cone Zone.”
