The realignment of New York Avenue and Eden Road to connect with TxDOT's new SH 360 Tollway in southeast Arlington is approaching completion.

Construction started in January 2018 on the $5.7 million bond project, which was approved by Arlington voters in 2014. The realignment is a necessary step in City's long-range thoroughfare development plans to extend Eden Road so that it one day stretches from US 287 in southwest Arlington to SH 360 on the southeastern side of town.

As part of the project, New York Avenue will no longer continue beneath the new SH 360 Tollway, which opened in May. Instead, New York Avenue will be realigned so it curves south to a new roundabout. From the roundabout, drivers will be able to take the newly built portion of Eden Road to access the southbound SH 360 frontage road, continue underneath SH 360 to access the northbound frontage road, or continue to go east on what becomes New York Avenue on the Grand Prairie side of the tollway. The new section of Eden Road will only run from Chambers Creek Lane to the south frontage road for now.

For the next month, all lanes of New York Avenue between St. Joseph Way and the southbound SH 360 frontage road will be closed as part of the realignment. The St. Joseph and Lake Murray Drive intersections at New York Avenue will be closed to help speed up this phase of construction, so residents in the adjacent neighborhood will have to use Mansfield Webb Road as an alternative entrance and exit.

Construction is expected to be substantially complete in September. This project, which also includes water and sanitary sewer line renewals and drainage improvements, aligns with the City Council priority to Enhance Regional Mobility.
