Conversion of Arlington Street and Sixth Street to One-Way
Phase 1 of the Silver Line Gateway Project includes construction of a dedicated busway extending from Everett Avenue to Eastern Avenue. The busway will require changes to intersections at Everett Avenue, Spruce Street, Eastern Avenue and Arlington Street/Sixth Street.
To reduce potential conflicts of turning movements within the 6-legged intersection of Arlington Street, Sixth Street and the Busway, both Arlington Street north of the intersection and Sixth Street east of the intersection will be converted to one-way:
- Arlington Street will be one-way from Sixth Street to Heard Street
- Sixth Street will be one-way from Arlington Street to Washington Avenue
The one-way conversion on Arlington Street and Sixth Street will occur at 7:00 AM on Tuesday, August 23. View the One-Way Circulation Map in English or Map in Spanish for details.
Washington Avenue Bridge Closure and Detours
Phase 1 of the Silver Line Gateway Project includes a full replacement of the Washington Avenue Bridge, which requires closing the bridge during certain stages of construction. The Washington Avenue Bridge was closed to vehicles in late May 2015, but it will remain open to pedestrians throughout construction. The bridge is scheduled to reopen to one-way traffic by spring 2016. Completion is scheduled by the end of 2016. During the closure, traffic detours are in place directing vehicles around the work zones via Cary Avenue and Broadway. To view the detour routes, please review the Map in English or the Map in Spanish. For more information about the work, please review the Notice in English or the Notice in Spanish.
