57-Hour Closure of Northbound I-5 Off-Ramp to Western Avenue

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close the northbound Golden State Freeway (I-5) off-ramp to Western Avenue in Glendale for 57 hours beginning Friday, May 18, at 9 p.m. through Monday, May 21, at 6 a.m.

The closure is necessary to complete ramp paving and striping. The construction schedule is subject to change. Detours will be signed.

For the safety of the construction crew and motorists, please be attentive to closures, slow for the cone zone, and move over one lane where possible.

About the Project


This project involves the realignment of the northbound I-5/Western Avenue interchange in Glendale. The realigned ramps will begin and end at a signalized intersection with Flower Street. The project will provide congestion relief for current and future local and regional traffic.

Work began in November 2010 and will be completed this month. Caltrans thanks motorists for their patience and understanding during construction.
