Arlington highway to close over weekend

Planning to use Texas 360 in Arlington this weekend? You might want to seek an alternate route.

From 8 p.m. Friday to as late as 5 a.m. Monday, Both directions will be reduced to one lane and detoured off the freeway for demolition of the old Division Street bridge, a Texas Department of Transportation official said.

Northbound traffic will exit at Abram Street and detour via Great Southwest Parkway. Southbound traffic will detour via Stadium Drive.

The work is part of a $56 million project that includes rebuilding car and train bridges and adding new shoulders, ramps and continuous frontage roads. It is to be finished by early 2012.
