About the Project

This project is building a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction along the Golden State Freeway (I-5) between the Ventura Freeway (SR-134) and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank, a total distance of 5.4 miles (2.7 miles in each direction). It is also constructing sound walls and retaining walls.

Truck Fire Snarls Afternoon Traffic on the I-5 Freeway

A truck fire on the freeway Wednesday, December 4, sent a large amount of smoke in the air that could be seen throughout Burbank. Burbank Fire Department, along with an Engine company from the Glendale Fire Department, responded to the truck fire on the northbound I-5 freeway at the Lincoln Street exit.

Upon the Fire Departments’  arrival, the cab and engine portion of the truck was well involved with fire, requiring the traffic in all the northbound lanes to be stopped so firefighters could lay out hoses to extinguish the blaze.

The Bobtail truck was hauling restaurant type supplies including barrels of used kitchen cooking oil. That oil started to leak from the truck on the freeway lanes, causing the CHP to issue a Sig Alert. Traffic in both directions was slowed till the truck was towed away. The exit was reopened and Cal-trans were able to put an absorbent on the roadway to prevent cars from sliding around.

About the Project

 Caltrans is building an HOV lane in each direction of I-5 between SR-170 and north of Buena Vista Street in Burbank.

Gatto’s Bill to Ease Traffic Congestion Passes First Committee

Assemblyman Mike Gatto’s (D-Burbank) legislation to help increase the efficiency of Los Angeles County’s freeway system, one of the nation’s most notoriously congested systems, passed its first legislative hurdle today, Assembly Transportation Committee by a vote of 15-1.  The bill, AB 405, will create pilot project to help ease traffic congestion during non-traditional commutes, by permitting single-occupancy vehicles to access the high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes (also known as carpool lanes), during non-peak hours.

“It’s happened to anyone who lives in Southern California.  A late-night accident or mysterious slowing clogs the rightmost freeway lanes, while the carpool lane sits empty,” said Gatto.  “AB 405 is a cost-effective way to expand capacity on the state’s highway system and ensure that non-peak hour travelers can travel to and from home and work and deliver goods and services efficiently.”

Originally drafted to apply only to the 134 freeway in Glendale and Burbank, AB 405 has been amended and expanded to include portions of the 210 freeway and other ones in the County deemed appropriate by the Department of Transportation.  Unlike Northern California, where most HOV lane restrictions are in place only during peak commute hours, HOV lanes in Southern California are restricted on a 24-hour basis.

“Congestion is almost always bad during rush hour; it need not be bad all night long,” said Gatto.  “Carpool lanes are intended to increase the capacities of our freeways, reward those who carpool during rush hour, and protect the surrounding environment from harmful exhaust.  When motorists are stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic at midnight while carpool lanes sit empty, none of those goals are being met.  That just doesn’t make sense.”

Gatto is also overseeing an effort with state and local agencies to investigate ways to address administratively the under utilization of HOV lanes in the region.

This project is building a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction along the Golden State Freeway (I-5) between the Ventura Freeway (SR-134) and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank, a total distance of 5.4 miles (2.7 miles in each direction). It is also constructing sound walls and retaining walls.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the following lanes and ramps of the Golden State Freeway (I-5) as part of a $121 million improvement project to construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes in each direction along I-5 between SR-170 to Buena Vista Street. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

About the Project

This project is building a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction along the Golden State Freeway (I-5) between the Ventura Freeway (SR-134) and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank, a total distance of 5.4 miles (2.7 miles in each direction). It is also constructing sound walls and retaining walls.

New Closures For I-5 Freeway Projects

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the following lanes and ramps of the Golden State Freeway (I-5) as part of a $121 million improvement project to construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes in each direction along I-5 between SR-170 to Buena Vista Street. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.

*Due to the Holiday there will be no closures on December 31, 2012 and January 1, 2013
