Alexandria’s streets have been getting the spotlight for the last few months of repaving efforts, but through August: it’s the sidewalks’ turn.
Alexandria’s Department of Transportation and Environmental Services released the street repaving and maintenance schedule for August, showing prioritization of seven sidewalks city-wide.
Over the course of this month, the following sidewalks are scheduled to get repairs:
- Gibbon Street (from South Payne Street to South Union Street)
- West Braddock Road (from King Street to Russell Road)
- John Carlyle Street (from Eisenhower Avenue to Duke Street)
- Hancock Avenue (from West Braddock to End)
- Queen Street (from North West to North Union Street)
- Rutland Place
- East Windsor Avenue
Maintenance this month is also scheduled to work on the West Reed alleyway (between Evans Lane and Wilson Avenue) in the Lynhaven neighborhood and Westview Terrace (between Janneys Lane and Hilltop Terrace) in Taylor Run.
The city is also making guardrail repairs this month on the eastbound side of Duke Street and on Van Dorn Street.
