ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - There will be a major road closure in Arlington this weekend, starting at 7:00 p.m. tonight.

"State Highway 360 will be closed at Abrams St.," says Val Lopez with TxDOT. "This is both north and southbound. We'll be diverting traffic onto the frontage roads."

The weekend-long closure is due to work to replace the Abram St. bridge over 360.

Lopez says the bridge replacement will be done in phases.

"We remove one part, shift traffic onto the other part, rebuild it, and then shift them onto the new lanes," Lopez says.

This weekend was strategically chosen to do the work.

"We're in between the seasons here at Six Flags, and there's no game at Cowboys Stadium," says Lopez. "So we want to take advantage of this time when all the venues in the Entertainment District are in low attendance."

Abram St. will also be closed. Eastbound traffic can get around the closure via Mitchell St., and westbound can go up to Division St.
