The Village of Lancaster initiated the Downtown Lancaster Roundabouts project to address traffic congestion and improve pedestrian safety by changing the signalized intersections on Pleasant Avenue at Central Avenue and Aurora Street to roundabouts. The project will include the evaluation and design of a “road diet” between the two intersections, providing for a future “Complete Street,” a transportation goal noted in the 2018 Joint Comprehensive Plan, which aims to provide safe access for all users. The Village aims to complete the design by December 2020 with construction anticipated to begin in 2021.
