The City of Arlington has launched a regular Bond Tracker segment for MyArlingtonTV to keep residents informed about the progress of construction on dozens of projects that were included in the City's bond elections.

This month's episode features the Eden Road and Timberlake Drive street rebuild projects, which are both part of the voter-approved 2014 Bond Program.

The Eden Road Project, which spans from US 287 to Calender Road in Arlington, is a full rebuild of the existing Eden Road to a two-lane roadway. This includes concrete paving, storm drainage improvements, water and sewer renewals, sidewalks, a hike and bike trail and streetlights. The project is still under design and the City's Public Works and Transportation Department is in the final phase of that design. The City hopes to bid this project in July and start construction this fall.

The Timberlake Drive street rebuild project is underway from Pioneer Parkway to Park Row Drive. The project features upgrades to drainage features and the renewal of sanitary sewers. The rebuild will also add a sidewalk and streetlights and includes Street reclamation from Park Row Drive to east city limits. Construction started earlier this month and will wrap up in Spring 2019.

Rebuilding residential streets aligns with the City Council priority to Enhance Regional Mobility. Residents can use the City's Street Tracker site to learn about the latest construction projects.

In November 2014, Arlington voters approved a five-year, $236 million dollar bond package. Projects included in the package focus on street improvements, Parks & Recreation, Fire Department facilities and City Libraries.

The City offers residents an interactive Bond Tracker website, filtered map, updated stories and videos on construction projects, and complete list of the Capital Budget Planning and Project Sequencing for the 2014 Bond Program here.

Each project will be updated on the website and the City will post stories, videos and pictures of the progress of those projects.
