Northbound Buena Vista Street 18-Month Parking Removal

Submit to FacebookSubmit to TwitterSubmit to LinkedIn

What: Street parking on a segment of northbound Buena Vista Street will be removed temporarily from Winona Avenue to 200 feet north of the I-5 on-ramp. About 17 parking spaces will be affected.

When: Parking will be prohibited in the designated area from, tentatively, April 28, 2014, through November 2015. This parking restriction will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If the parking restriction is implemented later than April 28, an update will be posted on the I-5 website (I-5info.com).

Why: The Buena Vista Street northbound travel lane will be shifted to the right, eliminating the parking lane temporarily. The shift allows Caltrans to add a second northbound left-turn lane from Buena Vista Street to the I-5 on-ramp. The second left-turn lane is needed to reduce congestion and enhance safety during construction of the railroad grade separation at Buena Vista Street and San Fernando Boulevard (part of the Empire Project). The parking lane will be restored.

Other Parking Options: Parking is available on side streets, such as Tulare Ave., N. Frederic Street and Brighton Street, and on Buena Vista Street north of the I-5 ramps.
