I-5 Empire Project Seismic Retrofit – Beginning December 2017

Seismic Retrofit for Bridge Columns at Buena Vista Street and Winona Avenue

Beginning in December 2017

What’s Happening:

Beginning in December 2017, crews will begin seismic retrofit work on the bridge columns at Buena Vista Street and Winona Avenue. This work is necessary to ensure that the bridge’s existing columns are more resistant to seismic activity.

Eastbound and westbound lanes on Winona Avenue and northbound and southbound lanes on Buena Vista Street, will be reduced to one lane in each direction. The intersection of Buena Vista Street and Winona Avenue is expected to be busy and potentially cause back-up to the I-5 northbound and southbound off-ramps. Please pay close attention to traffic signs alerting motorists on I-5 and Buena Vista Street.

The Empire Project is a series of improvements to I-5 in Burbank between Magnolia Boulevard and Buena Vista Street, including carpool lanes, elevated railroad tracks, reconfigured ramps, a new interchange at Empire Avenue, widening of the Burbank Boulevard Bridge, and more.
