Freeway access affected by construction

BURBANK -- Area roads will be closed throughout Burbank, Toluca

Lake and North Hollywood as Caltrans embarks on a $6.8-million sound

wall construction project on the Ventura (134) Freeway.


Work will be conducted at two sites from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday

through Thursday:

* The Vineland Avenue onramp to the westbound Ventura (134)



* One lane of the westbound 134 connector to the northbound

Hollywood (170) Freeway.

From 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. during the same days, construction at six

sites will be underway:

* The Hollywood Way onramp to the 134.

* The westbound 134 offramp to Cahuenga Boulevard.

* One to two lanes of the westbound 134 from Hollywood Way to

Lankershim Boulevard.


* The westbound 134 connector to the northbound 170.

* One lane of the northbound 170 from the 134 connector to Tujunga Avenue.

* The Vineland Avenue onramp to the northbound 170.

Also, freeway widening at undercrossings at Riverside Drive,

Vineland Avenue, Cahuenga Boulevard, Ledge Avenue and Forman Avenue

might result in nightly street closures during construction.

Lankershim Boulevard might also be closed.

The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2004.
