Six Months of Construction on the 134 Freeway Begins
If it's not one freeway or major roadway being worked on...it's another. Starting Monday, April 22 at 7 a.m. it's the 134 Freeway's turn to be a pain in the collective commuters' butt as a six-month long construction project gets underway.
Metro says drivers can expect inconvenience and possible delays in the Burbank area as their contractor "improves, widens and builds a sound wall at the overcrossing of State Route 134 at Bob Hope Drive."
A bit more about the project and how it will affect traffic:
During construction, portions of Bob Hope Drive will be closed where it crosses below the freeway between Warner Boulevard and Riverside Drive. Work includes installation of temporary support structures that will reduce clearance at the overpass.
The work is expected to be done way down the line, in early November 2013.
