ARLINGTON – Construction will begin next week on the State Highway 360 project from Abram Street to Kingswood Boulevard/Green Oaks Boulevard. The project will add an additional north and southbound mainlane, rebuild the Abram Street bridge over SH 360 and rebuild various exit and entrance ramps. This $53 million project will widen the 5.4-mile section of mainlanes from three lanes to four lanes in each direction.

During construction, three lanes will remain open in each direction, and lane closures will be scheduled during off-peak hours. SH 360 will be reduced to one lane in each direction next week at night to set barriers and for striping.

The project was awarded to Fluor Heavy Civil, LLC., and it is estimated for completion in 2020.
