The commute through Glendale may be periodically disrupted due to repairs following a tanker fire on the 134 Freeway over the weekend.

At various times, lanes may be shut down at the junction of the 134 and the 5 freeways. The lane closures are expected at night through Saturday. Scorched asphalt and bridge and guard rails need to be replaced.

A car slammed into the back of a gasoline tanker Saturday night, causing the fire. The driver of the car was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. The damage is estimated at $250,000.
