Update on I-5 Widening Project to be Presented at Community Open House on Oct. 24

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will hold a Community Open House on Thursday, Oct. 24, in Burbank to provide a public update and answer questions about the I-5 widening project underway in Burbank and Glendale.

The open house is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Buena Vista Branch Library meeting room, 300 N. Buena Vista St. in Burbank. Free parking is available. Reservations are not required.

The open house is a free, annual event. Caltrans will provide a progress report on the project and attendees will be able to talk one-on-one with project representatives concerning the ongoing work.

Caltrans is improving Interstate 5 (the Golden State Freeway) in Glendale and Burbank between the Ventura Freeway (State Route 134) and Buena Vista Street. Improvements include High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes, on- and off-ramp improvements, bridge widening and reconstruction, a new lane for truck traffic, new pavement, lane realignment and elevated railroad tracks to eliminate street-level rail crossings.

The I-5 Empire Avenue interchange in Burbank, a major part of the project, opened to traffic Monday (Sept. 30).

The improvements, valued at more than $500 million, are designed to enhance safety, improve traffic flow and encourage ridesharing. The contractor is Security Paving Co. Inc. of Westlake Village.

Information about the project is available online at My5LA.com and Twitter at @My5LA.

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.

 

 

Big Rig Fire Snarls Traffic on I-5 Freeway

Just after 1:00 pm on this scorching Wednesday afternoon, Burbank and Glendale Fire Engines responded to a big rig fire on the Southbound 5 Freeway at Alameda.

Burbank Battalion Chief and Engine 11 were first on scene to find fire and heavy smoke coming from the rear portion of the semi’s trailer, with the cab already detached by the driver. Engine 11 quickly knocked down the fire which was believed to have been started by overheated brakes.

Fire crews and CHP had the right lane and the Alameda off ramp shutdown for the duration of the firefight and clean up by crews.
