July is packed with holidays in Alexandria: Independence Day, the city’s birthday, and most importantly peak street repaving season.
The Department of Transportation and Environmental Services unveiled the latest batch of streets targeted for resurfacing and maintenance over the next two weeks, many of them around the Seminary Hill and North Ridge neighborhoods:
- Anderson Lane (from West Windsor Avenue to Richards Lane)
- North Garland Street (from Fort Worth Avenue to End)
- Greenwood Place (from Seminary Road to Circle)
- King James Place (from Seminary Road to End)
- Westminster Place (from Monticello Boulevard to End)
- Mayer Place (from Allison Street to End)
- George Mason Place (from Monticello Boulevard to End)
- North Howard Street (from North Jordan Street to Raleigh Avenue)
- Juniper Place (from North Jordan Street to End)
- Knox Place
The city is also working through sidewalk maintenance, including further work on the King Street sidewalk that started earlier this year.
