Closure Of I-5 In Burbank and Glendale Starts This Weekend
Not that most of us will be (or should be) zipping around freeways this weekend, but for those who do need to be on the road: A 36-hour closure of the I-5 Freeway in Glendale and Burbank starts this Saturday.
The closure begins at 2 p.m. Saturday through 2 a.m. Monday. It's part of a project to tear down and replace the Burbank Boulevard Bridge over the freeway.
All lanes of northbound I-5 will be closed at the 134 Freeway near Griffith Park, while the southbound I-5 will be closed at the 170 Freeway in Sun Valley.

When we last mentioned this closure was coming, in mid-March, we described it as being "reminiscent of 2011's 'Carmageddon.'" Times are, uh, a tad different now.
