City of Arlington Road Closures
Railroad crossings closed next week
Plan for railroad crossing closures while Union Pacific improves tracks through Arlington.
Railroad crossings between Division and Abram streets at Bowen Road, Davis Drive, Cooper Street, Center Street, Mesquite Street, Collins Street, and Stadium Drive will be closed Jan. 16-24.
Starting Jan. 16, crossings beginning at Bowen and moving east will close. Davis is expected to close Jan. 17, with Cooper, Center, and Mesquite closing Jan. 18, at which point five railroad crossings will be closed at one time. As the project continues to move east, Union Pacific plans to open Bowen before closing Collins and open Davis before closing Stadium.
Available north-south routes within the city limits are Green Oaks Boulevard, Forest Edge Drive, Fielder Road, West Street, and Texas Highway 360. West starts behind the E.H. Hereford University Center and runs north through downtown Arlington, connecting to Division. Fielder, Forest Edge, and Green Oaks are west of campus.
