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 results provide smoother roads and better infrastructure in various locations throughout Lancaster. Additionally, a number of community events take place year-round throughout the City, resulting in temporary traffic detours during event setup, activity, and breakdown. The City of Lancaster strives to provide as many opportunities as possible for community gathering and engagement.
The BLVD 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’s fall and winter hours are 3 – 7 p.m., every Thursday (excluding Thanksgiving day, November 22) on Lancaster Blvd., between Ehrlich Avenue and Fern Avenue. This area will be closed to traffic and parking from 1 – 11 p.m. on Market days.
Sidewalk closures on Kildare Street, Gadsden Avenue, and Lancaster Blvd. near The BLVD Starbucks location are due to construction related to the Marriott Hotel development.
Intermittent lane closures on Lancaster Blvd., east of 40th Street East, are due to utility and street improvements at Lancaster Baptist College.
Westbound and Eastbound Avenue K lane closures between 27th Street West and 40th Street West due to Public Works Construction Project, to repair sidewalks as well as curbs and gutters.
