You might have already noticed if it’s on a street near you, but this week the City of Alexandria has resumed its seasonal resurfacing work throughout Old Town.
Repaving work started on Monday this week as part of a seasonal program. This week and next, repairs and curb improvements are underway on Union Street from Pendleton to Franklin streets and Duke Street from South Union to South Patrick streets.
The schedule online indicates that work will continue until Friday, Sept. 3, with resurfacing work paused on weekends. Paving takes place between 7 a.m.-5 p.m., but the city said sometimes some work is done overnight to accommodate heavily traveled roads.
“Alexandria has more than 561 lane miles of road and each year, the City resurfaces approximately 50 of those lane miles,” the city said. “The City uses a paving management system called Pavement Condition Index, or PCI, to determine the condition of City roads. PCI, along with other factors, such as volume and type of traffic, planned utility work, and cost, are used to prioritize streets for repaving.”
The city said local residents will be advised of resurfacing work at least one week in advance.
“Temporary ‘No Parking’ signs will be also posted before work begins,” the city said. “Please be sure to observe these signs to avoid tickets and potential towing of vehicle.”
