Traffic Advisory Revised - I-5 Closed at Night in Burbank for Bridge Construction, Starting Monday (Sept. 20) for Two to Four Nights
Motorists are Advised to Consider Using Other Routes to Avoid Possible Delays
BURBANK — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to close all lanes on Interstate 5 in Burbank for bridge construction on two to four nights, with the number of nights determined by the progress of the work, starting at 11:59 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20.
COMPLETE FREEWAY CLOSURE on Northbound I-5:
All lanes on Northbound I-5 will be closed at Burbank Boulevard from 11:59 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20, to 4 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21. A detour will be provided.
The closure may be repeated from 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, to 4 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22, if needed.
COMPLETE FREEWAY CLOSURE on Southbound I-5:
On the next night following the closure(s) on Northbound I-5, a complete closure will take place on Southbound I-5. These complete freeway closures will happen in only one direction of travel at a time – either northbound or southbound – not in both directions simultaneously.
All lanes on Southbound I-5 will be closed at Burbank Boulevard from 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, to 4 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22, and/or from 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22 to 4 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 23. A detour will be provided.
The closure may be repeated from 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, to 4 a.m. Friday, Sept. 24, if needed.
Motorists are advised to consider using other routes to avoid the area due to possible traffic delays.
Northbound or Southbound I-5 may be reduced to only one or two lanes starting at 9 p.m. each night. Some I-5 on- or off-ramps may be closed, with detours posted.
These closures are for bridge construction at Burbank Boulevard. Crews are constructing the I-5 Burbank Boulevard Bridge and interchange, part of the I-5 HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle, or carpool lanes) project, by Caltrans, Metro (Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority) and the city of Burbank.
Dates, times and locations of closures may change due to weather or operational reasons.
Updates will be posted on the project’s website My5LA.com and on Twitter at @My5LA.
