Burbank Blvd Bridge Closing



Begins at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 14, 2020, weather permitting and subject to change.

Starting on Saturday, March 14, 2020, Burbank Boulevard will be closed to all traffic 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. The northbound I-5 off-ramp to eastbound Burbank Boulevard will remain open to traffic except during several weekend closures, each lasting up to 55 hours.

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 Street
3. Buena Vista Street
4. Empire Avenue
5. Magnolia Boulevard
6. Olive Avenue
7. Verdugo Avenue
8. Flower Street
9. Alameda Avenue

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

The northbound I-5 off-ramp to eastbound Burbank Boulevard will remain open except for a few 55-hour weekend closures. (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 in October 2019.)

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, the bridge 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.
