The City of Arlington has launched a regular Street Tracker segment on MyArlingtonTV to provide transparency and up-to-date information on both current and proposed street maintenance and construction projects.

This month's episode highlights how drivers in East Arlington can celebrate the opening of all four lanes of traffic on New York Avenue from Abram Street to Arkansas Lane.

This nearly $12 million project, which began construction in December 2016, includes new water and sanitary sewer lines, paving and drainage improvements, sidewalk and curb ramp improvements, benches and trash receptacles, pedestrian lighting, and stamped concrete and pavers at intersections.

Landscaping improvements are also included in the project; however, due to the extreme heat and drought conditions these have been delayed until September.

The reconstruction of this section of roadway is one part of the City's New York Avenue Corridor Strategy aimed at enhancing the quality of life in one of Arlington's most diverse and established neighborhoods. Click here to learn more about the City's strategy.

The New York Avenue Rebuild Project aligns with the Arlington City Council's priority to Enhance Regional Mobility throughout The American Dream City.

Residents can visit Arlington's Street Tracker webpage at The site features an interactive map, project list, videos, a news feed featuring the latest information on street construction and contact information for residents to report street problems, such as potholes, that they find in Arlington.
