67th Ave. NE night closures, week of April 21

Updated April 17, 2014

Crews are working hard to finish the 67th Avenue Final Phase project, including conducting the final pave of 67th Avenue NE the week of April 21, depending on weather conditions. In order to not impede daytime business traffic, paving is scheduled to take place during the evenings, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., between Lebanon Street and 204th Street NE. Full and partial closures of 67th Avenue NE in this area during the nighttime work will be required. Temporary detour routes will be clearly signed (see map below); potentially affected residents and property owners will be contacted before the closures begin. Final paving work is expected to be complete by the end of the week.

BNSF scheduled to upgrade Lebanon Street Crossing, businesses remain open during detour

Updated March 13, 2014

Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad is coming to Arlington in mid-March to replace the railroad tracks that cross Lebanon Street. The new railroad tracks will include a 10-foot wide pedestrian crossing area for the Centennial Trail, which will be located on the north side of Lebanon Street. Installation of the new railroad tracks will force the full closure of Lebanon Street for up to three days. Arlington has developed a detour plan to help motorists avoid this area during construction – see the map below. Due to recent mudslides, BNSF has not been able to provide an exact date for when they will perform this work. As soon as the City knows the construction date, we will pass it along to the public and update this article.
