In an effort to improve our neighborhoods and city streets, the City of Lancaster conducts a variety of road construction projects which will ultimately benefit our citizens. While these construction zones typically restrict traffic flow for an interim period, the end results provide smoother roads and better infrastructure in various locations throughout Lancaster. The construction zones listed below are valid through February 20, 2016.
• The BLVD Farmers Market is an opportunity for the community to gather and enjoy an offering of fresh produce and unique items in an open market atmosphere. The Market takes place every Thursday from 2 – 6 p.m. on Ehrlich/Elm Avenue, north of The BLVD. This area will be closed to traffic and parking from noon to 7 p.m. on Market days.
In conjunction with the Farmers Market, the Children’s Center of the Antelope Valley hosts a free art workshop on the last Thursday of every month at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH).
