The city of Burbank informed residents and commuters this week of a nighttime full street closure along Front Street, affecting the area between Burbank Boulevard and the southbound 5 Freeway Verdugo on- and off-ramps for two months starting in October through December.
“This closure is necessary to facilitate vital sewer and storm drain construction activities for the 777 Front Street Development project,” city officials stated.
During this temporary closure, access to the Downtown Metrolink Station will be limited, according to the city. Commuters can access the Metro Station via northbound Front Street at the southbound 5 Freeway on- and off-ramps or approaching from First Street and Verdugo.
Closure details are as follows:
• Dates: Oct. 9 to Dec. 8.
• Time: Monday through Friday, from 9 p.m. to 5:15 a.m.
• Location: Front Street between Burbank Boulevard and the southbound 5 Freeway Verdugo on- and off-ramps.
