The City of Arlington’s Public Works and Transportation Department is proud to announce the completion of construction on the Timberlake Drive (east city limits to East Pioneer Parkway) Project.

The City of Arlington’s Public Works and Transportation Department is proud to announce the completion of construction on the Timberlake Drive (east city limits to East Pioneer Parkway) Project. This project, which began in April 2018, consisted of the following improvements:

  • Rebuilding Timberlake Drive, from East Pioneer Parkway to Park Row Drive, with 10-inch pavement to create a longer lasting and smoother road surface
  • Asphalt reclamation from Park Row Drive to the east city limit
  • Stormwater drainage system improvements
  • Sanitary sewer line renewals
  • Improvements to sidewalks, installation of ADA-compliant ramps, and replacing streetlights for a more inviting environment for pedestrians

The City uses an annual pavement survey program to inventory the condition of all streets within the city limits. The condition of each street segment is reported as an Overall Condition Index (OCI) Rating between 0-100 based on the “ride” and “distress” of the segment. Roads with a rating lower than 50 are called “red streets” and are recommended for inclusion in the department’s Capital Improvement Program. Roads with a rating between 50 and 70 are called “yellow” streets and are included in the City’s Street Maintenance Program. The current OCI rating for this section of roadway is 100. This is a 61-point increase from its preconstruction rating of 39.

Funding for the rebuilding of Timberlake Drive between Pioneer Parkway and Park Row Drive was approved by Arlington voters in the 2014 Bond Election. Asphalt reclamation from Park Row Drive to the east city limits was paid for by funds collected through the Street Maintenance Sales Tax Program. This project aligns with City Council’s priorities to Enhance Regional Mobility and to Champion Great Neighborhoods.
