5 Freeway in Burbank to Experience Full Closure

  • 404 Not Found
  • Not Found

What: I-5 will be closed in both directions between Buena Vista Street and Lincoln Street in Burbank on Sunday, April 13, 2014, 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. See map below.

When: Lane closures will begin at 11:59 p.m. on April 12. All lanes will be closed by 2 a.m. on April 13 and will open by 4 a.m.

Why: The closure is necessary to ensure the safety of motorists and crews while overhead utility lines are removed as part of the Empire Project.

Alternate Routes: To avoid delays, consider using SR-170 instead of I-5. Motorists heading northbound on I-5 can take westbound SR-134 to northbound SR-170. Those traveling southbound can take southbound SR-170 at the I-5/SR-170 interchange, and then eastbound SR-134 to pick up southbound I-5.

Detour: A clearly marked detour will direct motorists who are diverted off I-5 during the closure and those seeking to access the freeway from local streets.

Signs: Electronic freeway signs will provide advance warning to motorists to allow them to avoid the closure area if desired.

Jaws Of Life Used To Remove Driver Of Car Struck By Loose Wheel On Freeway

Thursday evening, January 9, Burbank Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to extricate the driver of a white Honda Civic from his vehicle after it was badly damaged by loose car wheel on the 5 Freeway. At 10:40 p.m., Engine 11 was dispatched to the scene, along with Paramedics and a Battalion Chief, according to Capt. Peter Hendrickson of the Burbank Fire Department. He added the car looked like it had been struck by a very large object.

The car had stopped on the right shoulder of the northbound 5 Freeway near the Buena Vista exit. CHP officers also responded and stopped all lanes of traffic so the Fire Department could work. The driver and sole occupant of the Honda Civic sustained serious injuries, according to Officer Tom Miller of the California Highway Patrol.

The driver was taken to Holy Cross Trauma Center and the last BFD unit cleared the scene at 11:13 p.m. No further information on the accident or the condition of the driver is available at this time.

Construction and Closures Continue on I-5 Freeway This Coming Week

55-Hour Closure of Northbound I-5 Olive Avenue off-ramp 

 Caltrans is contructing a carpool lane on the Golden State Freeway  (I-5) between the Ventura Freeway (SR-134) and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank.

As part of the improvements, crews will be building a retaining wall on the northbound I-5 between Verdugo Avenue and Angelino Avenue as well as widening the northbound I-5 Olive Avenue off-ramp. This work will require the closure of the existing northbound I-5 Olive Avenue off-ramp to build a new temporary off-ramp during a 55-hour ramp closure.

Friday night, September 14, through Monday morning, September 17,  10 p.m. to 5 a.m.  (55-hour Closure)

Caltrans will make every effort to minimize any inconvenience to you. You may hear construction noise, but it will not exceed levels allowed by state and federal regulations

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.

Truck Crash on 5 Freeway Closes Lanes in Both Direction During Rush Hour

Burbank Firefighters work to clean up a diesel spill that resulted in a major accident that closed the I-5 in both directions Friday afternoon.(Photo by Ross A. Benson)

Burbank Fire units received a call at 5:05 pm of a major truck accident on the southbound 5 Freeway at Hollywood Way.

Upon arriving at the scene, they found a tow truck, SUV and big rig had been involved in a accident and the can of the big rig had crashed through the cement center barrier of the freeway and was resting in the northbound lanes of the freeway.

While all three vehicles received heavy damage, there were no reported injuries, but the real concern turned to the diesel tanks of the big rig which were spilling diesel fuel across the northbound lanes.  All lanes in both directions were at a complete stop.

Burbank’s Battalion Chief called for the Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) trucks from both Burbank and Glendale to respond to assist in stopping and cleaning up the fuel before it was  able to get into storm drains.  A check directly below on Hollywood Way showed that nothing had come through the freeway bridge above.

Once the spill was contained, officials opened one lane on each direction to start relieve the congestion until a trow truck was brought on scene to remove the truck cab, which once again closed lanes.

During the incident, Burbank streets such as Glenoaks and San Fernando quickly filled with motorists looking to get around the area.  Burbank police helped with traffic control.

Although the accident happened in Sun Valley, Burbank shares a mutual aid agreement with Los Angeles Fire and since Burbank was first to arrive on scene and had the situation under control before LA arrived because of traffic, they completed the incident.

CHP is in charge of the accident investigation, which is still on-going.

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.

 

The California Department of Transportation
(Caltrans) will close the following lanes, ramps, and connectors of the
Golden State Freeway (I-5) and the Ventura Freeway (SR-134) as part of a
$57.8 million improvement project to construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV
or carpool) lanes in each direction along I-5 between SR-134 and Magnolia
Boulevard. Closures are subject to change. Detours will be signed.
