Join Us for a Workshop on Complete Streets

"Complete Streets" describes a comprehensive, integrated transportation network with infrastructure and design that allows safe and convenient travel in the city for all users. The City of Arlington, with consultant Toole Design Group, will be holding an informational workshop for the Complete Streets program. This workshop is an opportunity for Arlington residents to provide input that can help shape the program for the specific needs of our community.

 

The Complete Streets program aims to address the needs of all users when development and redevelopment of traffic corridors are proposed with the City. Users include people who drive, family and commuter cyclists, pedestrians, people with accessibility needs, and those who use transit. It also addresses the aesthetics of our streets. This program will influence how our road system and development moves forward and what that means in terms of design, safety, accessibility, aesthetics and maintenance.

 
The workshop will be held on Thursday, April 26, 2018 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Putnam Hall inside the Arlington Airport Office.

For more information visit our Complete Streets webpage.
Zimmerman Trail Remains Closed

Zimmerman Trail is still closed due to damage sustained in a winter storm.

 

On March 31, Arlington Fire personnel helped out our Maintenance and Operations crews by removing several trees that were covering the trail. This was a great partnership between departments and provided Arlington Fire personnel with a great training opportunity. 

 

The next steps will be to fully inspect the damage and then move forward with repairs.

Construction of Arlington Valley Road Begins

Construction crews from Scarsella Bros, Inc. will begin construction of Arlington's newest road, Arlington Valley Road, on Monday, April 16.

The $3 million project includes the installation of the new three-lane road, along with water, sewer, and stormwater lines to service the area, as well as sidewalks and a trail through the corridor. The City received a $2.3 million grant from the state Transportation Improvement Board. Transportation impact fees and utility funds will fund the remaining $700,000 of the project.

Arlington Valley Road has been a part of the City's transportation planning since 2005 to help serve the industrial manufacturing sites in the Kent Prairie area that are poised for development in the Arlington-Marysville Manufacturing Industrial Center. The road will create a new route linking 74th Avenue NE to 191st Place NE.

Scarsella Bros, Inc. is expected to complete construction of the new roadway this fall.
