Public Meeting Set May 16 for Wimbledon Drive Improvement Project

Later this month, Public Works and Transportation’s Stormwater Engineering Division will begin construction of a $1.7 million project to mitigate flooding and make infrastructure improvements on Wimbledon Drive in south Arlington.

Planned improvements include the installation of stormwater drains and structures, water and sanitary sewer renewals, roadway repairs, concrete alley with curb and gutter, and landscape replacement.

  • The existing storm drain system will be improve with larger pipes and additional curb inlets to reduce the amount of ponding water on Bowen Road and Wimbledon Drive.
  • Water and sewer replacements will be constructed on Wimbledon Drive between the intersections of Bowen and Wimbledon and Kingsford and Wimbledon.
  • The roadways will be repaved after the installation of water, sewer and storm drain utilities.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in January 2019.

The public is invited to learn more about this project at a Construction Briefing Meeting on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the cafeteria of Arlington Classics Academy, located at 5200 S. Bowen Rd. The meeting will include a brief presentation followed by an open house format that will allow for one-on-one discussions to address residents’ questions.
