Flooding forces road closures in Old Town

The Alexandria Police Department has closed several streets near the waterfront due to flooding.

“The street closures run from King and Union Street To Prince and Union Street,” the Alexandria Police Department said in a tweet. “Cars parked in the area may be relocated.”

The tide is rising in Alexandria with high tide expected at 3:15 p.m.

The flooding comes after a fairly rainy weekend for the region.

Tidal flooding is a fairly common problem along Alexandria’s waterfront. A flood mitigation plan to combat future flooding is in the works, albeit with a reduced budget.
