LANCASTER, Calif. — Five freeway intersections in Lancaster will get some major upgrades.
The $65 million project is slated to start in 2018 and Lancaster’s Vice Mayor Marvin Crist says the improvements will be similar to what was done for Avenue I.
“The on-ramp, the off-ramp, the interchange and about a mile in both directions from the actual interchange itself,” said Crist.
That will be done at Avenues G, J, K, L and Columbia Way, but it won’t start for a couple of years.
Crist said the upgrades will include landscaping and even bike lanes.
“They’ll be funded by Measure R, which isn’t to be confused by the new Measure that’s being put out by Metro,” said Crist.
Crist is referring to the Measure R “Highway Equity” Funds that were approved by voters in 2008.
He says the interchange improvements will speed up traffic and make the infrastructure more accessible to commuters.
