Arlington Hall Repairs


The  cleanup is completed.


Meadow Run

We are continuing with repairs, most units are completed and residents are back to normal. Several guest housing units are nearing completion so these units may be used for UT Arlington Departments. There was a minor setback in two of the units during repair. A sprinkler line was hit and minor damage to ceilings and walls slowed the renovation process. We are still working to be completely finished with all units by February 12th. There may be a couple that need final clean up or flooring installed the week of February 15th.

Currently-February 15th

Addition of New Parking Lot

Construction started last week on a new student parking lot at the intersection of Doug Russell and Pecan Street. Once completed the new parking lot will provide 166 spaces for student parking.


Parking Lot 49 Redesign

Weather permitting, Parking Lot 49 will be redesigned over Spring Break.  Modifications to Doug Russell will be made to allow for a right and left turn lane onto Cooper to improve traffic flow and reduce accidents. We are estimating 235 additional spaces for student parking once this lot is completed.


Fine Arts Music Restrooms

The first floor mens and ladies restrooms are scheduled to be upgraded over the semester. These renovations will address ADA issues and create better utilization of the space.

West & Mitchell Drainage Corrections

Over the winter break, the University started the West and Mitchell  Street intersection drainage correction project. Flooding in this intersection, during even a minor rain event, has been an ongoing problem for years. With the installation of new inlets and drainage lines this intersection shouldn’t flood in the future under normal conditions.

Phase I of the project consisted of getting the new line across West Street, Student Lot 47 and Mitchell Street. It will be completed before classes start to prevent any traffic flow problems.

Phase II of the project will start January 23rd. It will consist of running the line from Mitchell to Johnson Creek.
