The Public Works and Transportation Department is pleased to announce that work to transform Calender Road, between Curry Road and Harris Road has reached a major milestone. The project, which is part of the City’s Thoroughfare Development Plan, is 50% complete.

Construction began in July 2020 with the relocation of franchise utility lines by contractors for ONCOR, Atmos Energy, AT&T and Spectrum. Once these were complete, the contractor began the task of upgrading 5,800 linear feet of water and sanitary sewer lines and 3,500 linear feet of storm water drainage infrastructure. The contractor is currently working on installing the roadway pavement.

In addition to the roadway and underground infrastructure improvements, the project also includes the construction of new sidewalks, streetlight improvements, two on-street bicycle lanes, and roundabouts at the Curry and Kuykendall Road intersections. The project is scheduled to be completed in December 2021.

Funding for this project was approved by Arlington voters as part of the $160 million street improvements package in the 2014 Bond Election and aligns with the City Council’s priorities to Enhance Regional Mobility and Champion Great Neighborhoods.

The Thoroughfare Development Plan (TDP) is a long-range planning tool that assists city staff in making decisions about the City’s transportation network. The TDP also allows for the testing of various transportation scenarios, including the impact that new land uses and demographic information potentially has on the number of lanes, level of service, delay, connectivity, and other measures of effectiveness.
