City of Lancaster Weekly Road Closures

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. 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 takes place every Thursday from 4 – 9 p.m. on Lancaster BLD, from Fern Avenue to Ehrlich Avenue. This area will be closed to traffic and parking from 2 – 10:30 p.m. on Market days.
