Permanent Closure of Barham/Bennett Southbound Off-ramp is Complete

Closed by 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.

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.
