Cooper Street Lane Closures Scheduled Next Month During Water Infrastructure Project

Articles Water Project Update

Two right lanes of northbound Cooper Street near West Inwood Drive will be closed January 3-6 and from January 9-13 for necessary water utilities infrastructure upgrades.

The construction area, which will be from just north of the intersection of Cooper Street and Matlock Road to Lynda Lane, will be temporarily paved to reopen all lanes the weekend of January 7-8.

During the lane closures, Arlington Water Utilities will install a new 18-inch valve in a water main near West Inwood Drive and Cooper Street. The work is in preparation for infrastructure enhancements that will improve service to a three-square-mile area of central Arlington from West Park Row Drive to West Arkansas Lane.

The $15 million project is scheduled to begin in fall 2017 and be complete by 2020.
