City of Lancaster to Conduct Comprehensive Pothole Repair Effort Next Week
Lancaster, CA - The City of Lancaster will conduct a comprehensive pothole repair effort beginning Monday, September 16 and concluding Thursday, September 19, 2019. During this four-day period, the City will deploy five trucks and ten staff members to strictly address potholes.

In an effort to ensure as many locations as possible are addressed as part of this concentrated effort, City crews will canvas Lancaster streets in a grid pattern, with all essential repair materials in tow. As potholes are discovered, they will be fixed.

“Maintenance and stewardship of our existing infrastructure, especially local roadways, is an important duty that we don’t take lightly,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Residents’ patience and understanding is appreciated during this concentrated effort to improve our streets. As Public Works crews work diligently in the streets throughout these four days, we ask Lancaster residents to be cognizant of crew presence while traveling through the community.”
