Ask Arlington: Next Phase of Abram Street Rebuild Project

“Ask Arlington” is a show dedicated to answering the questions you have about what’s happening in our city.

Each week, on the City’s social media pages, we’ll let you know what the topic of the “Ask Arlington” episode will be.

All you have to do is post your question and we’ll do our best to get it answered during our show.

This week’s show features Keith Brooks, Engineering Operations Manager for the Public Works and Transportation Department, to answer your questions about the next phase of the Abram Street Rebuild Project, which is part of the 2008 Bond Election.

The next phase of the Abram Street Rebuild Project will consist of the reconstruction of Abram Street between Collins Street and Stadium Drive as a 5-lane undivided concrete roadway from Collins Street to Gay Street. From Gay Street to Stadium Drive, Abram Street will be constructed as a 4-lane divided roadway.

Residents can expect to see underground drainage, sidewalks, water and sanitary sewer improvements, streetlights, and a new bridge over Johnson Creek that will significantly reduce the flooding of Abram Street.

This project is connected to the Arlington City Council’s priority of “Enhancing Regional Mobility.”
