BURBANK ? A design study is in the works to install a new freeway interchange at Empire Avenue as part of a larger plan to add a carpool lane to the Golden State (5) Freeway, between the Ventura (134) and Hollywood (170) freeways. The study would determine how to relocate city utilities like underground sewer lines and storm drains to make way for a new interchange, said David Kriske, a senior planner for the city. An expanded Empire Avenue interchange would provide on ramps and off ramps for both northbound and southbound traffic, Kriske said.

FREEWAY RAMP PROJECT The City Council approved an amendment to an agreement with CalTrans in connection with the Ventura (134) Freeway westbound ramp project.

In exchange for that work CalTrans agreed to widen the south side of Alameda Avenue between Hollywood Way and the new on-ramp to create an additional lane allowing for a free flow of traffic onto the ramp.
