Burbank Schedules Closures on San Fernando Road

With rain in the forecast, the temporary street closure along San Fernando Boulevard — located between Magnolia Boulevard and Olive Avenue — has been rescheduled to take place March 4-7, the city of Burbank announced Wednesday.

These closures are for the Downtown Burbank San Fernando Reconfiguration Project, which aims to improve the Downtown Burbank area by introducing a one-lane, one-way traffic flow northbound, allowing for more streamlined movement and making the area more walkable, said city officials.

The phased installation process, spanning three days and nights, will involve the removal of existing striping, restriping, installation of traffic control and parking signage, and minor traffic signal modifications.

Road closures will begin on Monday, March 4, at 11 p.m., starting with the block between Magnolia Boulevard and Palm Avenue. Subsequent blocks will follow in a phased approach, with intermittent closures on Magnolia Boulevard, Palm Avenue and Orange Grove Avenue.

Pedestrian and sidewalk access will not be impacted throughout the entire project installation. On-street parking will not be available along San Fernando Boulevard, between Magnolia Boulevard and Olive Avenue, during roadway closures.

Closure details are as follows:

• Monday, March 4, 11 p.m. — Tuesday, March 5, 10 p.m. from Magnolia Boulevard to Palm Avenue.

• Tuesday, March 5, 11 p.m. — Wednesday, March 6, 10 p.m. from Palm Avenue to Orange Grove Avenue.

• Wednesday, March 6, 11 p.m. — Thursday, March 7, 10 p.m. from Orange Grove Avenue to Olive Avenue.

Project dates are subject to change contingent on weather conditions.
