The Arlington Public Works and Transportation Department is proud to announce that road improvements being made under the 2014 Residential Rebuild program are nearing completion.

To reconstruct the greatest number of roadways in the shortest amount of time possible, this $21.7 million project was split into four phases. In addition to rebuilding the roads with concrete designed to last 50 years, each phase included water and sanitary sewer line improvements and addressed standing water issues on various streets.

Construction of Phase I began in February 2016 and was completed earlier this spring. This $8.4 million project consisted of improvements to sections Apache Street, Forrestal Drive, Kent Drive, Meadow Lane, Raton Ridge Lane, Tharp Street, Waggoner Drive, and Wynn Terrace.

Phase II includes segments of 14 different streets in three separate neighborhoods in east and west Arlington. This phase remains on target to complete major construction by November.

August saw the completion of Phases III and IV. These two phases addressed portions of Harmon Terrace, Kelly Terrace, and Wynn Terrace and Carswell Terrace, Connally Terrace, and Glynn Oaks Drive in east Arlington. Phase IV also addressed ponding issues on Overbrook Court.

Funding for these improvements, which align with the City Council priorities to Enhance Regional Mobility and Champion Great Neighborhoods, were approved by Arlington residents in the 2008 and 2014 bond elections.
