Crime, hazardous weather, debates over city transportation policy: it’s another week down in Alexandria.
With courts being back in session, news coverage of trials and convictions is back in full swing with the sentencing of a local teen who murdered a young couple that gave him a ride to southern Virginia and a pastor’s wife who had money laundering added to earlier fraud convictions.
It’s also been a busy week for transit policy in Alexandria, with new projects moving forward on the east end of Eisenhower Avenue all the way to prioritizing a transit hub in the West End.
