Update: Abram St. Project Construction & Lane Closures

Here are the anticipated lane closures and traffic impacts for the coming weeks on and along Abram Street in Downtown Arlington. Closures and detours are subject to changes due to weather and schedule.

New or updated information is indicated in bold.

Pecan Street

  • Pecan Street, between Abram and Main streets, is closed to through traffic until early November. This closure is necessary to allow for the installation of new sewer lines and improvements to the stormwater drainage system. Visitors to the area can access the parking lot located between Pecan and Oak Street from Oak Street.
  • With the completion of the new ADA-compliant ramp located at the southeast corner of City Hall and the closure of Pecan Street, the temporary ADA ramp located at the northeast corner of Abram and Pecan Streets has been closed. Work to remove the ramp will take place on Sept. 21 and Sept. 22. A pedestrian detour is in place to direct visitors from the parking lot west of City Hall to the north entrance of City Hall.

West Street between Abram Street and Main Street

  • Beginning Monday, Sept. 25, West Street between Abram and Main streets will be closed to through traffic to allow for the installation of a water line, storm drain line, and electrical conduit across West Street. To minimize the length of the closure, work is scheduled to take place 24 hours a day and be completed by 5 p.m. Thursday. Sept. 27. Access to businesses located in the closed area will remain available during the closure. Drivers are encouraged to use the detours shown on the map below.
