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 newly renovated Fire Station 12, located at 5050 South Collins Street, Arlington, TX 76018.

The $1.9 million renovation has added nearly 1,000 square feet of living space and an additional drive-thru bay for the station's vehicles. This is the station's first major renovation since opening in the 1980s. Hutcherson Construction, Inc., of Arlington, served as the general contractor.

This bond project began on January 1, 2017 and will enable the station to accommodate needs for privacy, disabilities, work space and a future aircraft firefighting and rescue vehicle. A re-opening ceremony for Fire Station 12 will take place in early December.

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.
