Regional population grows slightly

The population of Glendale and Burbank grew by 0.7% in 2009, modest gains that were in line with many Los Angeles County cities, according to a report from the California Department of Finance released Friday.

In Glendale, the population grew from 206,540 to 207,902 in 2009, while in Burbank, the number of residents grew from 107,682 to 108,469, according to the report.


La Cañada Flintridge grew 0.6% to 21,261 residents.

Los Angeles remained California’s largest city by far, with a population of 4.09 million people.

San Diego was the second largest metropolitan area, with 1.37 million people, according to the report.

The Department of Finance generates the population figures so that local governments can calculate their annual appropriations plans. Other state departments use the figures in determining payment and funding allocations.


Interstate 5 to have some lane closures

Up to three lanes of the Golden State (5) Freeway between the Foothill Freeway and State Route 118 will be closed starting Sunday as part of a major road repair project, according to an announcement from the California Department of Transportation.

From Sunday to Friday, Caltrans will close up to three lanes between Paxton Street and San Fernando Mission Boulevard from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.; and the I-5 HOV lane along the same stretch and time period.

The $10-million project will revamp the pavement within the project area, or about 4.5 miles in each direction. The overall project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
