Abram Street Construction in Downtown Begins March 19

The Abram Street rebuild through Downtown Arlington kicks off Monday, March 19.

The Arlington City Council awarded a $26.1 million contract with Rebcon Inc. of Dallas on Feb. 27 to rebuild Abram Street between Cooper and Collins streets. Construction on this transformative project is anticipated to wrap up by March 2020.

The first phase of construction includes the removal of the traffic island at the southeast corner of Cooper and Abram streets and the installation of temporary lanes along the south curb line of Abram Street between Monroe and Lampe streets. Drivers should expect outside lane closures on northbound and southbound Cooper street approaching Abram Street as well as the outside eastbound lane of Abram Street between Monroe and Center streets.

A groundbreaking for the project will take place on March 26 at ​10:30 a.m. The event will be held at the southwest corner of Abram and Pecan streets.

Want to stay up-to-date on the project’s progress? Downtown Arlington Management Corporation will work closely with the City of Arlington to communicate lane closures, construction milestones and other important information to residents, visitors and the business community during the two-year project through the MyAbram website.
