Trail Closure Notice

Bob Findlay Park Trail improvements originally took place in 2017 the trail was replaced except for a small portion located north of Westwood Dr. The delay was due to a partial sanitary sewer line replacement located under the trail.

The 2017 trail improvements replaced the 20-year-old trail with a new concrete trail that is 12 feet wide, providing for greater opportunities for shared use.

A Water Utilities project to rehabilitate the existing 66-inch sanitary sewer main near Westwood Drive and Village Creek is set to start in early October. The work will rehabilitate the sanitary sewer main that partially collapsed and was temporarily repaired in 2015 as a result of corrosion in the existing pipe.

City Council approved a $1,957,019 contract for the upcoming project with S.J. Louis Construction of Texas. Repairing the large main is expected to take 315 days. During that time, a portion of the Bob Findlay Linear Park Trail in North Arlington will be closed to allow the work to take place.

Once the new sanitary sewer line is completed, the Bob Findlay Linear Park Trail in the area will be widened, from 8 feet to 12 feet across matching the newest trail improvements.

Residents are invited to attend a Virtual Public Meeting on September 28th regarding this Utilities Project.

The online informational meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28, 2020. A link and phone number to access the meeting will be posted on the Water/Sewer Projects tab at www.ArlingtonTX.gov/waterconstruction.
