Drivers should anticipate some street closures in Downtown Arlington next month as infrastructure is put into place for the 101 Center project.

The intersection at East Street and South Street will be closed from May 2 to May 9. Then, the section of East Street between Abram Street and South Street will be closed from May 9 to May 23. Additionally, the intersection at Abram Street and East Street will be closed from May 23 to May 30, but only between the hours of 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.

101 Center, a mixed-use project being built on the site of the former George W. Hawkes Central Library, is a partnership between the city and a private development group headed by Catalyst Urban Development.

The redevelopment will include high-end residential units over a ground level of retail, restaurants and loft office space. The project, expected to open in 2017, will also include a structured parking garage with ground level public parking spaces.
