Burbank Blvd Bridge Closing

CONSTRUCTION ALERT

BURBANK BOULEVARD BRIDGE DEMOLITION AND RECONSTRUCTION

Begins on February 14, 2020

On February 14, 2020, Burbank Boulevard will be closed between San Fernando Boulevard and Front Street as crews begin the process of demolishing and reconstructing the Burbank Boulevard Bridge over Interstate 5. This closure is expected to last about 14 to 16 months, weather permitting. During demolition and reconstruction, Burbank Boulevard at I-5 will be closed at all times to all traffic: vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle.

During the bridge demolition and reconstruction, nine (9) freeway crossings will remain open and five (5) freeway interchanges will remain open to serve Burbank.

Nine (9) freeway crossings are open and accessible:
1. Hollywood Way
2. Cohasset St
3. Buena Vista St
4. Empire Ave
5. Magnolia Blvd
6. Olive Ave
7. Verdugo Ave
8. Flower St
9. Alameda Ave

Five (5) freeway interchanges are open and accessible:
1. Hollywood Way
2. Buena Vista St
3. Empire Ave
4. Verdugo Ave
5. Alameda Ave

And, the northbound I-5 off-ramp to eastbound Burbank Boulevard will remain open except for a few short closures throughout reconstruction. (The northbound I-5 off-ramp to westbound Burbank Boulevard, the southbound I-5 off-ramp to Burbank Boulevard, and the westbound Burbank Boulevard on-ramp to southbound I-5 were closed at the beginning of October 2019.)

ABOUT THE NEW BURBANK BOULEVARD BRIDGE
The new bridge overcrossing will be lengthened to accommodate the new I-5 carpool lanes and the on-ramps and off-ramps will be reconfigured. In addition, it will be widened to accommodate more street lanes, bike lanes in both directions, and a wider sidewalk.

The schedule is weather-permitting and subject to change.
