Arlington Expressway Resurfacing Begins

06 | 14 | 2023

As part of the Arlington Expressway resurfacing project, the Colcord Avenue ramp from eastbound Arlington Expressway to westbound Colcord Avenue has closed permanently. Access to the Arlington Expressway Service Road from eastbound Colcord Avenue will not be affected. Colcord Avenue will continue to be accessible via the University Boulevard South exit ramp.


The resurfacing project on the Arlington Expressway from the Mathews Bridge to Southside Boulevard includes milling and resurfacing the expressway and service roads, new signage, pavement marking improvements and pedestrian safety upgrades. In addition, the Red Bay Branch bridges, located east of Arlington Road on the north and south side service roads, will be rehabilitated. Detours will be in place during street-level reconstruction of the bridges.

In addition to the Red Bay Branch bridge detours scheduled later in the project, drivers should expect nighttime and overnight lane closures during construction. Lane closures will not be scheduled during peak travel times or on holidays or special events.

Superior Construction, Inc. is the contractor for the $26 million project. It is scheduled for completion in fall 2024, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.
