Nearly $8 Million in Residential Street Rebuild Projects Began This Month

Work is underway to rebuild sections of seven residential streets in north and east Arlington as part of the Public Works and Transportation’s 2016 Residential Rebuild project.

In addition to smoother roads, residents on the selected streets can look forward to improved water and sanitary sewer line renewals. This project is replacing asphalt pavement roads with concrete roads that are designed to last 50 years.

Using a rating system that measures the extent and severity of pavement distress and ride comfort, the City of Arlington selects streets identified as being in the worst condition for rebuilding through the annual bond-funded Residential Street Rebuild Program. In order to make the biggest impact while reducing the inconvenience construction projects have on residents, the 2016 project has been split into two phases.

Construction on Phase I, which will rebuild portions of Cedar, Gardiner, and Woodrow streets, began late this month and will cost approximately $2.7 million.

The affected sections are:

  • Cedar Street from Woodrow Street to Cooper Street
  • Gardiner Street from Sanford Street to Fuller Street
  • Woodrow Street from Fuller Street to Cedar Street

Construction began on Phase II earlier this month. This $5.2 million dollar project targets four roads in east Arlington that are beyond routine maintenance.

The affected sections are:

  • Reever Street from Moore Terrace to Browning Drive
  • Ridgeway Street from Hillcrest Drive to Huntington Drive
  • Greenway Street from Raines Street to East Park Row Drive
  • Highland Drive from Mitchell Street to Raines Street and from Raines Street to East Park Row Drive

Funding for the 2016 Residential Street Rebuild project was approved by voters in the 2014 Bond Election. Rebuilding residential streets aligns with the City Council priority to Enhance Regional Mobility.

When will the city of Arlington consider doing anything for the southwest side of the city? Most of the projects are near the entertainment district. there are other parts that need help. Try going down Matlock after 4 p.m. on a week day.

Please wet your dust down in the neighborhoods as people with dusted homes and autos don’t want it in their lungs…street repair is a public health hazard when you use companies that do NOT take precautions to keeps harmful dust out of the air!!!
