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.
