It’s been an uncharacteristically busy day for King Street news.

The street could be getting new bike lanes and a sidewalk on the north side of the road in a few years. In the short term, however, a section of the street is getting resurfaced and some stormwater improvements this month.

King Street from Janneys Lane to Russell Road — the stretch west of the Metro station — is being resurfaced this month. West Glebe Road is also being resurfaced from Valley Drive to the Arlington border.

Repaving work started yesterday (Monday) and will run through Saturday, Sept. 30.

“Businesses and residents whose streets are scheduled for resurfacing receive advance notice of paving work — typically by displayed project signs and/or letters,” the city said in a release. “Temporary ‘No Parking’ signs will also be posted before work begins. Please be sure to observe these signs to avoid tickets and potential towing of vehicles.”

Along the same stretch of King Street, new storm inlets are being installed. Storm inlets are also being installed on the 100 block of Monroe Avenue and the 1600 block of Duke Street.
