Western Avenue will be closed under the Golden State Freeway (I-5) in Glendale for construction work from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. today. Detour signs will be posted for the work, which is scheduled to close the stretch of roadway each night for the same period through Thursday, according the California Department of Transportation. The construction is part of a realignment of the interchange that is expected to be completed next summer. The majority of the work will be performed at night to minimize traffic impacts, although the construction schedule is subject to change, Caltrans warned.

Janine Marnien City officials are closely monitoring a Caltrans project that would reopen a portion of Highway 39 where it meets Angeles Crest Highway. Once reopened, the 6.2-mile stretch of road about 10 miles northeast of the city would complete a recreational loop from Azusa to La Canada Flintridge. Officials have contacted Caltrans to make sure they are involved in the process, Director of Public Works Steve Castellanos said. It was too early for city staff to know what the effects of the project would be on La Canada Flintridge, he added.

Janine Marnien Since the 45-mph speed-limit signs on Angeles Crest Highway don't seem to be having much effect on drivers, city officials are working with Caltrans to get a traffic signal installed on the road. They're hoping the signal will do two things -- slow traffic and provide a place for pedestrian and equestrian crossing on the busy highway. "We're getting 60 mph and above instead of 45, especially between the hours of 7 and 9 a.m.," Mayor Dave Spence said.

Janine Marnien The sounds of drivers rushing to work on the Foothill (210) Freeway are a little closer to being muffled. Caltrans has approved the city's request for a Noise Barrier Sound Survey Environmental Report, a study that must be performed before any construction can begin on sound walls. The city received notification of the approval March 4. "The project is extremely important to the future quality of life to La Canada Flintridge," Councilman Anthony Portantino 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. WHAT IT MEANS The amended agreement will have the city picking up the cost of soil testing for property CalTrans will use for easements during construction of the new on-ramp from Hollywood Way. 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.

Loose rocks and other hillside debris could keep traffic off the stretch of road between La Cañada Flintridge and Angeles Forest Highway for as long as a month, Caltrans officials announced Monday. Caltrans plans to reopen the portion of Angeles Crest Highway that runs above Angeles Forest Highway to the Islip Saddle intersection with State Route 39, an area about 40 miles from the 210 Freeway in La Cañada Flintridge. Recent storms caused rockslides along the road about two miles above La Cañada Flintridge, forcing the stretch of highway closest to town to remain closed, according to a statement by Caltrans.

Joshua Pelzer The city will try to get a little more out of a joint plan with Caltrans that would make it easier to get on and off the freeway in Glendale. The project will modify the ramps at Fairmont Avenue and Doran Street at the Ventura (134) Freeway interchange with San Fernando Road. Caltrans will widen the ramps, construct sound walls and install traffic signals and safety lighting at the interchanges. The city will use a $29-million Caltrans grant awarded in 1998 to build a bridge connecting Fairmont and the southern portion of Flower Street over San Fernando, the railroad tracks owned by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Verdugo Wash.

Robert Chacon Residents along the Angeles Crest Highway have another chance at a meeting Thursday night to weigh in on the placement of an electronic road sign. Since June, the California Department of Transportation has made 13 attempts to find a suitable location for its message sign but has been met with disapproval from area residents each time. The sign will provide drivers with information about road conditions on the highway. In an attempt to placate residents and the city, Caltrans officials have reduced the size of the sign and postponed construction of the project.
