Crews Constructing Drainage System Improvements at On-Ramp

BURBANK — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) advises motorists that the Northbound Interstate 5 On-Ramp at Empire Avenue/San Fernando Blvd. is scheduled to be closed for construction on Monday, April 10, to April 17 at 5 a.m.

The schedule is subject to change due to weather or operational reasons. Detours will be posted as follows:

  • Northbound Traffic on San Fernando Blvd: Detour west on Empire Avenue and north on Buena Vista Street to northbound I-5.
  • Eastbound Traffic on Empire Avenue: Detour south on San Fernando Blvd. to Burbank Blvd. to northbound I-5.

The construction is part of the I-5 HOV Lanes and Interchange Improvements Project by Caltrans and Metro (Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority) which constructed I-5 carpool lanes, the I-5 Empire Avenue interchange, the I-5 Burbank Blvd. Bridge, pavement in both directions on I-5, realigned ramps and elevated railroad tracks to eliminate street-level crossings. The project’s completion date is this year.
