The I-5 Empire Project is a series of 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 at Buena Vista St. and San Fernando Blvd. and adjacent to Empire Ave.
