$9 Million Residential Street Rebuild Project Begins Next Month

Work to replace aging roadways and water and sanitary sewer infrastructure continues in east and central Arlington. Over the next two years, 10 street sections will be rebuilt as part of the Public Works and Transportation Department’s 2017 Residential Rebuild Program.

Using a rating system that measures the extent and severity of ride comfort and pavement distress, the City of Arlington identifies streets most in need of rebuilding under the annual bond-funded Residential Rebuild Program. Under this program, residents on targeted streets can look forward to new concrete streets, improved sidewalks, street lights, and water and sewer line improvements.

Phase I of the 2017 Program is scheduled to begin construction in early May and take a year to complete will take place on the following streets:

  • East Inwood Drive (South Collins Street to Daniel Drive);
  • Southmoor Drive (South Collins Street to Daniel Drive); and
  • Rayborn Drive (Biggs Circle to East Inwood Drive)

Residents who are interested in learning more about Phase I are encouraged to attend a Construction Briefing Meeting at City Hall, 101 W. Abram Street, from 6 to 7 p.m., on Monday, April 16.

Phase II of the 2017 Program is currently under design and is expected to begin construction next spring and be completed in spring 2020.

Streets included in this phase include:

  • East Second Street (South Center Street to Mary Street)
  • East Third Street (South Center Street to Mary Street)
  • Hosack Street (South Center Street to Mary Street)
  • Mary Street (West Mitchell Street to Ray Street)
  • Ray Street (South Center Street to Mary Street)
  • Rose Street (South Elm Street to Mary Street)
  • Kelly Terrace (South Collins Street to East Park Row Drive)

This $9 million bond-funded project was approved by Arlington voters in the 2014 Bond Election and aligns with the City Council’s priority to Enhance Regional Mobility.
