The City of Arlington is finishing up design plans to reconstruct Abram Street from Cooper Street to Collins Street. The plan calls for a 3-lane undivided concrete roadway from College Street to Vinson Street.  From Cooper Street to College Street, Abram Street will be constructed as a 4-lane roadway with 2-lanes of through traffic in each direction and 2-dedicated turn lanes at the Cooper Street intersection.  From Vinson Street to Collins Street, Abram Street will be constructed as a 4-lane roadway with 2-lanes of through traffic in each direction and 3-dedicated turn lanes at the Collins Street intersection.  Dedicated right-turn lanes are also proposed for the Abram Street intersections at Center Street and at Mesquite Street.

The improvements include water and sanitary sewer renewals, streetlights, sidewalks, underground drainage, landscaping, power source for tree lighting and special events, architectural features, and on-street parking.

We realize that construction is a major inconvenience.  We request and appreciate your patience and cooperation during these inconveniences, detours, and delays as these needed infrastructure improvements are constructed.
