New freeway onramp should ease Burbank studio traffic

Officials on Friday christened the new onramp from Hollywood Way onto the 134 Freeway.

The new ramp eliminates a left turn that backed up traffic during peak times for a corridor that accommodates hundreds of workers for Disney, Warner Bros. and NBC.

Previously, motorists heading north on Alameda Avenue had to cross traffic to turn onto the Alameda onramp.

The $47-million project through the California Department of Transportation started in April 2007. It also included the lengthening of freeway overcrossings on Alameda and Pass avenues, as well as Hollywood Way.

So many errors. First, the "new ramp" is actually the rebuilt original ramp. The ramp that required a left turn from "northbound" Alameda as described in this article, was a temporary on-ramp in use while the original ramp was being rebuilt. Actual northbound traffic on Alameda would be turning right onto the temporary ramp not left. Southbound traffic on Alameda would be turning left onto the temporary ramp. This reporter needs to check his facts and directions.
