LANCASTER – The city of Lancaster, acting on behalf of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), announced a construction closure on the Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) in Lancaster.
Construction will take place from 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, on northbound SR-14, from Ave K to Avenue I. Residents and businesses nearby may experience noise, vibrations, and grinding associated with construction activities. To assist motorists during this period, detour signs will be prominently posted. Delays are expected, so officials are encouraging commuters to consider alternate routes whenever possible.
“These closures are a crucial component of a comprehensive project aimed at converting the existing partial interchange into a full interchange, thereby enhancing traffic operations and creating more efficient connections to upstream and downstream interchanges. Specifically, a northbound off-ramp and southbound on-ramp are being added to improve overall traffic flow at Avenue J,” Lancaster city officials said in a news release.
