Due to an unexpected conflict with other utilities, lane closures on Abram Street in downtown Arlington will last longer than originally anticipated.

Westbound lanes on Abram Street between East Street and Elm Street will remain closed to drivers through July 1, about two weeks longer than scheduled.

The two westbound lanes and the center turn lane in this section of Abram Street, just east of the Arlington Municipal Court, are closed to accommodate the installation of public infrastructure for the 101 Center development project. Only one eastbound lane of Abram Street is currently open in the affected section.

Drivers needing to travel westbound on Abram can detour south on Mary Street, west on Border Street and then back north on Mesquite Street to get past the construction. Those wanting to connect to Cooper Street from Abram can detour south on Mary and turn right on Border Street, which becomes UTA Boulevard.

Starting July 1, the infrastructure work will shift west, causing the westbound lanes and center turn lane of Abram Street to be closed between Elm Street and Mesquite Street for approximately a month.

Also, East Street between Abram Street and South Street remains closed as part of the 101 Center project. That section is expected to reopen July 1.
