What’s Next:
  • In order for the project to move forward, Arlington voters must approve a debt exclusion to pay for Arlington’s share of the project.  A June 11 special election is scheduled.
  • Assuming passage of the debt exclusion, the Design Development phase will start this summer. During Design Development, the design will be finalized.
