BURBANK (CNS) - Caltrans officials say demolition of the Burbank Boulevard bridge across the Golden State (5) Freeway is proceeding on schedule during a 36-hour closure that will continue through Monday.
The closure began at 2 p.m. Saturday and will remains in place until 2 a.m. Monday.
All lanes of northbound I-5 are closed at the Ventura (134) Freeway near Griffith Park, while the southbound I-5 is closed at the Hollywood (170) Freeway in the Sun Valley area of Los Angeles.
Signs are in place to direct drivers to other routes.
Ramps and freeway connectors will be open by 6 a.m. on Monday, or four hours after the full freeway closure ends. The schedule is subject to change for operational reasons.
The Burbank Boulevard bridge will be reconstructed as part of a Caltrans project that is adding I-5 carpool lanes in both directions. Caltrans also will realign the freeway at Burbank Boulevard to enhance safety.
