The Lancaster City Council voted recently to award a project to repair and resurface 45 lane miles of Lancaster’s roads. The nearly $3.6 million project will be paid out of the capital improvement budget, as well as from Transportation Development Act funds.
“Our goal is to continuously look for better ways to improve public roads and community safety,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “The city’s Pavement Management Program successfully improves the quality of our streets in numerous ways, while allowing us to explore innovative options for enhancing public thoroughfares with safe and sustainable infrastructure and maintenance.”
In addition to the repaving and resurfacing of roadways, the project also provides for new road striping, curb and gutter improvements, and the establishment of new bike lanes in accordance with the city’s Master Plan for Trails and Bikeways.
The streets to be resurfaced include: Lancaster Boulevard from 20th Street West to 30th Street West and from Yucca Avenue to Challenger Way; Avenue J from Challenger Way to 20th Street East; Avenue I from 67th Street West to 87th Street West; Avenue K-8 from 15th Street West to 17th Street West; 15th Street West from Lancaster Boulevard to Avenue J; 20th Street West from Avenue H to Avenue I; 20th Street West from Avenue J-8 to Avenue L; 30th Street East from Avenue H to Avenue I; and Fern Avenue from Avenue I to Lancaster Boulevard.
