Hollywood Way Closed for Six Months
If you've noticed northbound Hollywood Way closed in Burbank between Riverside Drive and Alameda Avenue, get used to it -- it's scheduled to reopen in October. Caltrans tells the Burbank Leader that they advise commuters to use Pass and Verdugo Avenues in the interim.
A new onramp is being built on the 134 freeway to help congestion flow on the busy artery near major studios and the Los Angeles city border in the Toluca Lake neighborhood. Caltrans spokeswoman Jeanne Bonfilio told the Leader that "now, people coming east have to turn left and have to cross over traffic to get there. This will eliminate weaving across oncoming traffic to get to freeway. This is a great safety improvement to that entire onramp."
