LANCASTER, N.Y. — The Village of Lancaster has now broken ground on its West Main Street project.
The $8.5 million project will transform the village and extend West Main over to Aurora Street, ending with a new mini-roundabout.
There will also be a few other new roundabouts and new opportunities for mixed-use development.
Local business owners say they're excited to bring more small businesses to the village.
"The developer has really put a lot of effort into making sure that his tenants are going to complement us, as opposed to be direct competition, and it's rally going to make Lancaster a destination," Crystal Newman of Bloomsbury Lane Toy Shoppe said.
Plans also call for the relocation of some infrastructure near West Main and a new pedestrian extension in the downtown area.
