The Rangers have sent out a news release to remind fans of coming closures beginning Thursday, Aug. 3, in preparation for utility work on the Texas Rangers’ new Arlington ballpark.
— Nolan Ryan Expressway will be closed from south of Randol Mill Road to just north of parking lot entrance B7.
–The remainder of the Toyota Parking Lot A (south half behind the current Texas Live! construction site) and the northwest quadrant of the Tundra Parking Lot B will also be closed.
The first phase of the work will be overseen by Manhattan Construction Company – the general contractor for the new ballpark – and is expected to begin in the coming days. The first phase will encompass the relocation of a 48” sanitary sewer line and is expected to take three to four months to complete.
The ballpark’s excavation is expected to begin late September, causing Nolan Ryan Expressway to be permanently closed from Randol Mill Road to Cowboys Way around Sept. 18.
Following the Rangers’ homestand from Friday, Aug. 11, to Thursday, Sept. 14, the Rangers expect most of Tundra Parking Lot B to close, though they said more information will be made available closer to time.
Once the homestand begins, however, patrons will need to take Cowboys Way to enter parking lot entrances B6 and B7 and need to note that Lot B will be open on game days for season parking only.
The release noted that Lexus Valet Parking will continue at lot entrance B1 and cash parking will be available in Tacoma Lot R, south of Arlington’s Globe Life Park.
