»On Tuesday (5/31/2016), city and community leaders joined together to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new George W. Hawkes Central Library in downtown Arlington. The library is expected to open in 2018. Click here for the full article.
»Have you heard about the new Rangers ballpark? Yes, I said it, NEW BALLPARK! Not like there is anything wrong with our current one, but this is Texas, right? Everything's gotta be bigger! I found this interesting article from the Dallas Morning News that puts everything into persepective. The plan is to have it up and running in 5 years, it will most likely hold less fans than Globe Life does currently and there is still no public mass transit in Arlington.
»There is going to be a new overpass at E Broad Street and Hwy 360. The work is expected to begin this month. With Mansfield growing as fast as it is, officials are trying to keep traffic to a minimum. The project will be taking place during this year's Rockin' 4th of July, so be sure to check out this video showing detours.
