Starting today, drivers will not be able to travel westbound on Abram Street between East Street and Elm Street through downtown Arlington.

The two westbound lanes and the center turn lane in this section of Abram Street, just east of the Arlington Municipal Court, will be closed for approximately three weeks to accommodate the installation of public infrastructure for the 101 Center development project. Only one eastbound lane of Abram Street will be 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.

In late June, 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.
