Nighttime Full Closures of I-5 in Burbank Begin Oct. 17

Between October 17 and November 3, 2016, nighttime full freeway closures will be implemented on northbound and southbound I-5 between Alameda Avenue and Orange Grove Avenue in Burbank (less than a mile) from midnight to 4 a.m. Both directions will NOT be closed at the same time.

Southbound closure dates: November 1-3

Ramps within the construction zone will be closed as well.
