Matlock Road Street Maintenance Project Complete

The construction barricades are gone and a section of the highly traveled Matlock Road north of Interstate 20 is now smoother for drivers.

The City of Arlington recently wrapped up a $544,000, two-month project to replace the worst of the broken concrete panels on the stretch of Matlock Road between I-20 and Mayfield Road. These repairs, funded by the quarter-cent Street Maintenance Sales Tax, are designed to extend the lifespan of the roadway.

Due to aging concrete streets the Public Works and Transportation Department has placed increased emphasis on  repairing failed concrete slabs throughout the City. The work is accomplished by utilizing contracts and internal crews. The City of Arlington had previously made minor repairs in this section of roadway at residents’ request, but conditions required more extensive repairs. Additional concrete panel replacements along Matlock Road are anticipated next budget year.
