DEVELOPING: Winter weather conditions shut down city services and some streets

It’s snowing pretty heavily in Alexandria, with a winter weather warning in effect until 4 p.m. today (Monday). With that has come a round of closures across town.

The weather has impacted travel around Alexandria. The Alexandria Police Department said the southbound lanes of Quaker Lane from Duke Street to Seminary Road are closed due to hazardous conditions.

There is also a road closure on Beauregard Street from Seminary Road to Fillmore Avenue due to a downed tree.

While Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) are closed, students are still in virtual learning classes today.

The city government announced this morning that all government facilities and courts will be closed today. Included in that are the COVID-19 testing kiosks at Charles Houston Rec Center (901 Wythe Street) and Ben Brenman Park (4800 Brenman Park Drive).

The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria announced that it would be closed today as well due to inclement weather today.

Other city services, including yard waste collection, leaf collection, trash and recycling collection are also suspended today.
