City Councilman Tom LaBonge warned San Fernando Valley motorists Thursday about plans to resurface a stretch of Van Nuys Boulevard in Sherman Oaks this weekend, closing freeway ramps and causing potential traffic delays.

Van Nuys Boulevard ramps to and from the Ventura (101) Freeway will be closed for much of the weekend to accommodate the $700,000 “Van Nuys Boulevard Street Lift,” which will resurface the street between between Ventura and Magnolia boulevards.

The upgrade will include new lane striping, repainted curbs and cleanup of sidewalks, officials said. Caltrans also plans to take advantage of the ramp closures to conduct its own freeway maintenance.

The street was resurfaced most recently in 1998.

“Infrastructure has always been very important to the City,” LaBonge said. “In collaboration with the Board of Public Works, the Bureau of Street Services, Caltrans and myself, the city will now be able to complete this major street resurfacing project in Sherman Oaks with excellence, diligence and efficiency.”
