Articles Traffic Alert 03-01-16

A section of Mesquite Street in downtown Arlington is set to be closed the weekend of January 27-29.

The one-way street will be closed between Border and Front streets for construction-related repairs from 7 p.m. Friday, January 27 until 7 p.m. Sunday, January 29.

Then from February 4 through February 12, the intersection at Abram and Center streets will be closed to allow for infrastructure work related to 101 Center.

The City of Arlington will install Digital Message Signs (DMS) regarding the closures and the contractor will notify businesses affected by the closures. Drivers can take West Street, Cooper Street or Collins Street as alternative routes through downtown.

The existing road closures on Abram, Mesquite, Main and Pecan streets related to construction of 101 Center and the Downtown Library projects remain in effect. One eastbound lane on Abram Street remains open to drivers traveling east of Arlington City Hall.

When complete this year, 101 Center will include 244 high-end residential units over 18,000 square feet of ground-level retail, restaurants and loft office space. The six-story, redevelopment project, located at the northeast intersection of Abram and Center streets, is a partnership between the City and a private development group headed by Catalyst Urban Development.

The 80,000-square-foot, three-story Downtown Library is expected to open in June 2018 just north of City Hall.
