Come Learn About the Empire Project!

Caltrans is hosting a Community Open House next week in Burbank for the Empire Project. What’s the Empire Project? Glad you asked! The Empire Project is a series of major improvements to I-5 in Burbank, including

> Adding carpool lanes between Magnolia Blvd. and Buena Vista St.

> Constructing a new interchange at I-5 and Empire Ave.

> Reconstructing the Burbank Blvd. overcrossing and realigning ramps.

> Elevating the railroad tracks at Buena Vista St. and San Fernando Blvd. and adjacent to Empire Ave.

And more! The project will enhance safety, relieve congestion, improve traffic flow and provide easier access to the airport and shopping centers. We expect to begin construction in May. Come to the Community Open House and learn more. Details:
