About the Project

This project is building a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction along the Golden State Freeway (I-5) between the Ventura Freeway

(SR-134) and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank, a total distance of 5.4 miles

(2.7 miles in each direction). It is also constructing sound walls and retaining walls.

The new HOV lanes will alleviate congestion, encourage carpooling, improve air quality, provide a smoother ride for motorists, and reduce traffic on city streets.

Funding for this $57.8 million project is provided by Proposition C. The contractor is Security Paving of Sun Valley, California. Work began in March 2011 and is expected to be completed in late 2014.

Caltrans thanks motorists for their patience and understanding during construction.
