The I-5 Empire Avenue Interchange in Burbank opened to traffic Monday, September 30, 2019. This milestone enhances access to the Hollywood Burbank Airport (formerly Bob Hope Airport) and improves traffic circulation by providing a new Empire Avenue undercrossing and on- and off-ramps in both directions on I-5.
The newly completed Empire Avenue interchange is an excellent detour while three of the five I-5 ramps at the adjacent I-5 Burbank Boulevard interchange are closed for long-term construction. The closures started Monday night, September 30, 2019.
Burbank Boulevard detour information is shown below the photos of the new Empire interchange.
The Construction Notice, below, contains information about the ramp closures at Burbank Boulevard. The ramp closures started Monday, September 30. A larger version of the detour map is shown under the Construction Notice.
