The City of Lancaster is continuing work on the new recycled waterline that runs underground along Avenue K.
The next stage began this week and will involve extending the recycled waterline from the 12th St. West intersection. Traffic restrictions will extend from 15th St. West to 12th St. West as described below..
The traffic restrictions are projected to last for approximately 25 working days for this segment of the project. The specific traffic impacts can be viewed on the city’s GIS map of road closures at www.cityoflancasterca.gov/roadconstruction.
The temporary traffic restrictions will enable the city to advance the construction of the new 24-inch recycled waterline from 10th Street West to 15th Street West along Avenue K. During the upcoming 25-day working period, construction work will occur between the hours of 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m., with soft closures during the day for potholing.
“As we head into the end of summertime in Lancaster, we all understand how important access to water is for our community,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “The City Council and I are grateful for residents’ continued patience as city staff continues work on this project. It takes effort by all of us to help make a better future for the Lancaster of tomorrow.”
While the traffic restrictions are projected to be in effect for 25 working days, the overall effort to construct the recycled waterline is anticipated to take approximately 120 working days. Plan and expect delays during construction. The project is completed in October.
The project is part of the city’s Capital Improvement Program, managed by the Capital Engineering Division.
