It’s been a bumpy ride for drivers on the West End traveling along King Street, but that should change after next week.
The City of Alexandria is planning to start resurfacing King Street between S. 28th Street and S. 25th Street, a portion of the street passing Array at West Alex and the busy intersection with S. Walter Reed Drive.
“The work will start on Monday, July 27, and is expected to end on Friday, July 31, weather permitting,” the city said in a news release. “Due to high traffic volumes during the day, paving will take place overnight on weeknights from 8 p.m.-5 a.m. Traffic and parking in the immediate and surrounding areas may be redirected during work hours. Please observe all parking and detour signage.”
The city said residents affected will receive advance notice by letter or construction signs.
“City staff will be onsite managing the project; roads will fully reopen to traffic at the end of each shift,” the city said. “The City recognizes that night paving may be an inconvenience to residents living along this section of King Street. Thank you for your patience and support as we work to improve the City’s infrastructure.”
