Construction on the Ventura Fwy in Burbank will begin Monday

A small section of the Ventura Freeway (SR-134) near Bob Hope Drive in Burbank is about to get a minor facelift as a sound wall constructed. The construction may mean traffic delays. Here’s the release just issued by Metro.

Motorists can expect inconvenience and possible delays in the Burbank area as Metro’s project contractor improves, widens and builds a sound wall at the overcrossing of State Route 134 at Bob Hope Drive.

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.

A signed detour will be provided to direct traffic around the closure.  In addition, eastbound State Route 134 motorists exiting Bob Hope Drive and wishing to access destinations north of State Route 134 will be detoured via Riverside Drive and Buena Vista Street.

Work begins at 7 a.m. Monday, April 22, 2013 and is expected to be completed November 5, 2013.
