City, community, and businesses leaders recently celebrated the transformative Abram Street Rebuild through Downtown—a final milestone that also marks the completion of the largest street rebuild in Arlington’s history.

Downtown was the fourth and final section of the voter-approved $50 million Abram Street Rebuild, which started at the Grand Prairie city limits east of SH 360 in July 2014 and progressed west to Cooper Street over the past six years. In all, nearly seven miles of one of Arlington’s major thoroughfares and the gateway to the heart of the city was rebuilt as part of the City Council’s priority to Enhance Regional Mobility.

The $26 million investment between Cooper and Collins streets brought much-needed roadway and utilities improvements, additional on-street parking, enhanced landscaping and pedestrian amenities such as benches and LED lighting designed to create a more vibrant, welcoming atmosphere for Downtown shoppers, diners, and visitors.

You can learn more the Abram Street Rebuild and other mobility improvements, including the voter-approved Calender Road rebuild in southwest Arlington, in the latest edition of the Enhance Regional Mobility newsletter.

All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are now produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.
