Old U.S. Highway 80 runs right through old downtown Arlington. The interstate moved everything a few miles north and slowly downtown just faded into insignificance. Old businesses closed or relocated.

Some of the buildings and signs remain, but most are in pretty bad shape now through years of neglect or abandonment. Sometimes during the summer, I’ll take old highway 80 home from Dallas. I’ll turn of the air conditioner and roll down the windows and try to imagine what the road was like 50 years ago.
