A dream for Downtown Arlington
Thanks to the citizens of Arlington, a re-imagining of Abram Street from Cooper to Collins Streets was approved as a part of the 2008 bond election. The details of the redesign were informed by a series of public meetings held in 2014. Construction will last two years: from March 2018 – March 2020.
Driven by the benefits of a more pedestrian-oriented downtown — such as improving health and safety, developing a sense of place, and boosting the downtown economy — the redesign includes franchised utility relocation, drainage correction, LED street lighting, safer on-street parking, and many streetscape and pedestrian friendly amenities such as shade trees and benches.
