Full Closure of Buena Vista Street Jan. 23-24

If you use Buena Vista Street under I-5 Burbank in Burbank, there’s a full street closure coming up this weekend that we’d like you to know about. 

Buena Vista Street will be closed in both directions between Winona Avenue and San Fernando Boulevard for bridge work Saturday, Jan. 23, at 3 a.m. to Sunday, Jan. 24, at 6 p.m. Crews are widening I-5 to make room for new carpool lanes, which means the bridge needs to be widened. They’re also building an elevated railroad bridge over Buena Vista Street, eliminating the grade-level crossing. The closure is necessary to keep motorists, pedestrians, and construction crews safe while work is underway this weekend. Signed detours will be posted. Learn more about the project here

As always, construction activities and closures are subject to change—and that’s especially true during these stormy El Niño months. To make sure you stay informed about any schedule changes, sign up to receive updates here
