A big lane closure is scheduled this weekend in Arlington. Both directions of Texas 360 will be reduced to one lane -- weather permitting
-- from 8 p.m. Friday to possibly as late as 5 a.m. Monday at Division Street.
Motorists are urged to seek alternate routes. Those who dare navigate their way through the area anyway can expect to be detoured off the freeway to make room for the demolition of the old Division Street bridge.
Northbound traffic will exit at Abram Street, to Great Southwest Parkway and across the railroad tracks and back to Texas 360.
Southbound traffic will exit at Division Street, to Stadium Drive and over the railroad tracks to Abram Street, and back to 360.
The work is part of a $56 million project, which includes rebuilding Division Street bridge and a railroad bridge. New shoulders, ramps and continuous frontage roads are also part of the package. The work should be done by early 2012.
