A pedestrian crosses Scott Road and Amherst Drive along San Fernando Boulevard. Burbank got a $900,000 grant to fund pedestrian/traffic improvements on the North San Fernando Boulevard corridor. The project is aimed at slowing down traffic to reduce car accidents -- there have been 89 accidents on the roughly half-mile stretch between 2006 and 2010. The City Council is expected to approve the grant in the next couple months.
