Project Update: I-5 Western Avenue Interchange Project

Good news for those of you who use the northbound I-5 Western Avenue ramps in Glendale — the interchange improvement project at this location is almost done! Quick recap: The project is reconfiguring the on- and off-ramps so that they’ll begin and end at a signalized intersection at Flower Street. Recently, we completed striping the off-ramp, which is now open, as you can see here: 

We’re still finishing up striping and joint-sealing the on-ramp, which will take another couple weeks. You can see both ramps here (closed on-ramp is to the right):

Note that the off-ramp is now four lanes where it terminates at Flower Street, which helps reduce congestion and improve traffic flow. We’re also working on the signage. Here’s the off-ramp sign awaiting installation:
