Union Pacific Rail Project to Cause Significant Crossing Closures in January

Arlington drivers will be dealing with unprecedented detours and road closures in January, when a Union Pacific track renewal project moves eastward from Fort Worth to Dallas. It is a major railway improvement which is going to require the simultaneous closure of four to five railroad crossings in Arlington for several days at a time. The project is expected to begin in Fort Worth on January 1 and UP estimates the track renewal project should reach Arlington around January 16 and last roughly eight days.

The project, called TRT 909 is replacing rail and installing concrete ties on a 13 mile stretch of rail which runs parallel to Division. It will move across the city at rate of about two miles per day, in four phases, greatly impacting north and southbound traffic.

Initially, it will require the closure of the following crossings for approximately four to five days: Bowen Road, Davis Street, Cooper Street, Center Street and Mesquite Street. The railroad crossings will remain closed 24 hours a day during all phases of the track renewal.

Arlington public safety officials are working to create detours to lessen the impact on emergency services but say the closures could have a significant impact.

For the latest information on the UP track renewal project and updated maps of the roadways as they are closed, follow the City of Arlington on Twitter @CityOfArlington or visit their web site:
