This is just a reminder of the scheduled closures of the railroad crossings in our city.
Union Pacific (UP) began work on their track renewal project in Fort Worth on January 4, 2013. The project includes replacement of the north mainline rail, crossties, and rock ballast, as well as, the renewal of each roadway crossing. UP expects to reach Forest Edge Drive in Arlington on January 16, as it moves east. Below are the anticipated dates of closure for the roadway crossings in Arlington:
North Center Street
Great Southwest Parkway
Each roadway closure will last 3-4 days to replace the pads and approaches, except Cooper Street which will remain closed for 6-7 days due to the width of the roadway. UP has committed to have Bowen Road re-opened before Collins Street closes, and Davis Drive re-opened before Stadium Drive closes. Operations are expected to be completed in Arlington on January 23, with the exception of Great Southwest Parkway, which is expected to be closed for approximately two weeks due to UP’s work schedule.
