Street Maintenance Work Underway on Green Oaks Boulevard, Little Road

Crews are milling off the top layer of Little Road between Pleasant Ridge and Interstate 20 so that repairs can be made to the concrete roadway beneath. The road will be resurfaced during the project, which is expected to be complete by early next year.

Street maintenance work is now underway to create a smoother ride for drivers on sections of Green Oaks Boulevard and Little Road in southwest Arlington.

Drivers can expect lane closures on Green Oaks Boulevard between Little Road and Interstate 20 and on Little Road between Pleasant Ridge Road to Interstate 20 during this phase of the repair project, which is expected to be complete by early 2017. Both roads will maintain at least one northbound and one southbound lane at all times.

The project includes milling off the existing road surface and repairing failed sections of concrete paving underneath. Once the concrete repairs are complete, a new two-inch asphalt overlay road surface will be applied.

“This work will provide a much smoother ride for drivers and create a longer-lasting roadway,” said Mike Davis, Acting Field Operations Supervisor for the Public Works and Transportation Department.

Electronic message boards will warn motorists about lane closures throughout the project duration. Drivers are asked to be patient and pay attention to construction personnel and flaggers when traveling through the work zones.

“During this project phase, there will be some night work. That will hopefully minimize the impact to traffic,” said Richard Carmichael, Acting Operations Manager for the Public Works and Transportation Department.

The City of Arlington recently completed street maintenance work on Green Oaks Boulevard between Pioneer Parkway and Arkansas Lane.

The City recently completed the first phase of street maintenance work on Green Oaks Boulevard between Pioneer Parkway and Arkansas Lane, which included installation of new sidewalk ramps. That project started in early June and wrapped up earlier this month.

Both projects together are expected to cost an estimated $4.7 million, which is about $1 million less than originally projected. The repairs are funded through the voter-approved Street Maintenance Sales Tax Fund.

The Green Oaks Boulevard and Little Road street maintenance work aligns with the Arlington City Council priority to Enhance Regional Mobility.

I truly appreciate that Arlington keeps the roads in good shape. However, the lane closures on Green Oaks and Little Road between Pleasant Ridge and I20 seem excessive. There are multiple lanes closed on both sides of each road and Little Road closures go on for over a mile. Could you please work to reduce these closures to only the areas that can be worked on at one time, so that the residents of Arlington can get their kids to school and get to work without such a crazy backup as has been caused these first few days? Thank you!
