If you’ve been grumbling about potholes in Alexandria’s northern neighborhoods, there’s good news: relief is on the way.
The City of Alexandria released the lineup for upcoming street repaving and the list of prioritized streets is a whose-who of northern Alexandria residential avenues.
According to the release, the first two weeks of repaving will hit:
- Lynhaven Drive (from Wilson Avenue to End)
- Evans Lane (Richmond Highway to East Reed Avenue)
- Montrose Avenue (from East Raymond Avenue to Richmond Highway)
- Terrett Avenue (from East Mt Ida to East Randolph Avenue)
- Stewart Avenue (from Mount Vernon Avenue to East Randolph Avenue)
- Executive Avenue (from Kentucky Avenue to Mount Vernon Avenue)
- Alabama Avenue (from Kentucky Avenue to Carolina Place)
The release said that residents on those streets will receive advance notice of paving through project signs and/or letters, with temporary “no parking” signs posted. The release warned that the affected streets will have limited access during repaving, but local traffic will be able to pass through and access driveways.
“City staff will be on site managing the project, and at the end of each workday, roads will be fully open to allow for overnight parking and traffic,” the release said.
