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.

Caltrans Closes Alameda Offramp for Two Months

As part of the improvements, crews will be removing the existing asphalt pavement on northbound I-5 Alameda Avenue off-ramp and replacing it with concrete pavement. This work will also accommodate the addition of the new carpool lanes for the widening of the freeway. A long-term closure of northbound I-5 eastbound and westbound Alameda Avenue off-ramps will be necessary to complete this work. Sunday, December 9, 2012 through Friday, February 8, 2013   9 p.m. to 6 a.m. (60-day continuous closure).

(See map below for detours.) (Southbound Alameda Avenue off-ramp closure is on-going.)

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.

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

Multiple Closures of Streets Planned Around I-5 Contruction Project

Flower Street Sewer Work/Temporary Full Street Closure 

 Caltrans is constructing 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 begin excavation for the removal and replacement of the existing sewer pipe lines at the intersection of Flower Street and Providencia Avenue.

To ensure motorist safety, a full street closure of Flower Street will be required.  Local traffic on Flower Street and Providencia Avenue will be given access. You may hear construction noise during this operation, but it will not exceed levels allowed by state and federal regulations.

The closures will take place from ate October 2012/early November 2012 from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

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

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.

The work will begin Monday night, October 29, through Thursday morning,November 1, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. (55-hour Closure).

Construction to Begin at Buena Vista and Vanowen Railroad Crossing

 

Starting October 22nd the Burbank Public Works Department, working with the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA), will begin construction work on a joint project to improve rail crossing safety at Buena Vista Street near Vanowen Street.
 
The completed project will include new traffic islands, a second left turn lane on Vanowen Street, an entirely new rail crossing gate protection system with four pedestrian protection gates, new rail control systems, and a new
rail communication system that will be installed by the rail contractor.
 
When completed, the project will significantly increase safety at this important rail crossing. City staff estimate that the project will take six months to complete and will result in periodic lane and road closures.

Pile Driving at Bob Hope Airport’s Transportation Center Should Not Affect Area Residents

On September 20,  prime contractor McCarthy Building Companies began the pile driving phase of the construction of Burbank Bob Hope Airport’s Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC). Eight hundred seventy-five piles will be driven between now and the middle of December 2012 to support the above ground structural elements of the RITC.

The hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. up to 8 p.m., and on Saturday from 8 a.m. up to 5 p.m., as required by the project schedule. During the first week of this phase, there will be one pile driver in operation, and two pile drivers will operate thereafter. The vibration impact of the pile driving operation will be barely noticeable within an approximate 100-yard circumference of the pile driving and is not anticipated to cause any structural or architectural issues for nearby buildings.

McCarthy is driving steel H-piles 65 feet into the ground, providing deep foundations to support the RITC and an elevated moving walkway that will convey travelers between the RITC and the passenger terminal.

McCarthy will also install triple-pendulum-bearing seismic isolators that will dramatically reduce seismic forces from a maximum credible earthquake event, allowing the RITC to be fully operational afterward.

When completed, the RITC will bring Airport patrons and multiple transportation modes together at a single location with easy access to and from the passenger terminal. The RITC will be located along Empire Avenue, directly across from the Bob Hope Airport Train Station, and will include a three-level consolidated rental car facility; a rental car customer service building; a ground-level bus transit station; and the elevated covered moving walkway to the terminal building. The transportation center is scheduled to open in summer 2014.

 

New I-5 Construction Updates, Alameda Ave. to Experience Closures

Caltrans is constructing 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 pile driving on the I-5 median at Alameda Avenue. The piles will provide structural support necessary for the widening of the freeway.

There will be no lane closures on the freeway.

This construction activity will require a partial closure of Alameda Avenue. At least one lane in each direction will be open at all times. Flaggers will be on site to control the flow of traffic. Should traffic back up on Alameda Avenue, there will be a detour in place. Monday, September 17, through Friday, October 12, 2012 – Monday – Friday 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m

You may hear construction noise and experience vibrations during this operation. Noise will not exceed levels allowed by state and federal regulations.

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.

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.
