BURBANK — A redevelopment project started Monday on Olive Avenue as construction began on sidewalks, driveways and the street between Glenoaks Boulevard and Sixth Street. The 1/3-mile stretch of street will be repaved, and damaged curbs, gutters and pedestrian ramps will be reconstructed, Public Works Director Bonnie Teaford said. “It was in very poor condition,” she said. “We like to get in, get it all done and get out of there.” The $380,000 project was financed through a community development block grant that helps low-income neighborhoods revitalize the area, Teaford said.
