I-5 Construction Advisory – SR-134 to Buena Vista Street, Sept 22-29, 2017

Front Street Long-Term Closure: Front Street between the Metrolink station (south of the Magnolia Boulevard Bridge) and Burbank Boulevard will be a northbound-only one-way street.  For access to the Metrolink station from northbound I-5 use the Olive Avenue exit to 1st Street and cross under the freeway on Verdugo Avenue, and southbound I-5, use the Verdugo Avenue off-ramp exit.

 

Seismic retrofitting:  In fall 2017, crews will start seismic retrofit work on the I-5 bridge columns at Buena Vista Street and Winona Avenue. This work is necessary to ensure that the bridge’s existing columns are more resistant to seismic activity. Expect delays on Buena Vista Street, Winona Avenue, and the I-5 northbound and southbound off-ramps.  Additional information will be provided.

 

Be Alert!  Beginning in October 2017, expect traffic switching patterns on northbound and southbound I-5 from Hollywood Way to Verdugo Avenue. This is necessary to continue construction of the Empire Project.

 

Please remember, graffiti is a crime.  Violators will be prosecuted.
