Alexandria launches new interactive map for flood mitigation projects

The City of Alexandria has launched a new interactive map that lets locals keep track of flood mitigation projects around town.

The interactive map shows all 35 ongoing projects around town, as well as two recently completed ones and seven future projects.

Intense flooding in recent years pushed the issue of flood mitigation into the limelight, pushing some local citizens to flood mitigation activism. While the city has moved forward on several flood mitigation projects, the new map is helpful for keeping track of those.

Clicking on each dot pulls up a snapshot of the project with information like cost, funding source, and a project timeline.

“This ‘project dashboard’ is a digital Geographical Information System (GIS)-based tool that allows users to view more than 40 currently-identified flood mitigation projects from a list or on a map to view the proposed solution, cost and estimated implementation schedules, among other information,” the city said in a release. “To explore information about the projects, click on the dots on the map. A window will pop up with information, including the type of project, status, cost, funding source and estimated construction start date.”
