Permanent Closure of Barham/Bennett Southbound Off-ramp - OCTOBER 17, 2015
After reviewing the proposed project, it was determined that the existing southbound US 101 Barham/Bennet off-ramp would need to close to enhance freeway operations due to its close proximity to the new Universal Studios Boulevard on-ramp. The off-ramp was permanently closed on October 17th, 2015. The southbound Barham/Bennett on-ramp and northbound on-and off-ramps will remain open.
All Projects Ahead of Schedule
We understand that construction is an inconvenience, which is why our team has worked tirelessly to complete this improvement as quickly as possible to get 70% of Universal Studios visitors off of local roadways.
- The New Southbound US 101 On-ramp is nearing completion and expected to be completed and operational by the end of December 2015.
- The Regal Place/Lankershim Boulevard On-ramp improvements are scheduled for completion in December 2015.
