The Department of Transportation and Environmental Services (T&ES) is hosting an open house next week on safety enhancements planned for King Street.

T&ES is planning a series of changes along King Street near the Bradlee Shopping Center. A community meeting to discuss the changes is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. on  Thursday, Feb. 15, at the Fairlington Presbyterian Church (3846 King Street).

Feedback collected by the city said the roadway is currently confusing and not very pedestrian friendly, with crosswalks on only one side of the street and some confusing intersection design, according to a presentation from city staff.

The changes, first announced late last year, could include bike lanes and more sidewalks along the road.

The plans to improve that stretch of King Street are particularly timely, with Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) leaders expressing concern about pedestrian safety in the area, especially with students walking back and forth between the two Alexandria City High School campuses.

The design process is set to kick off this spring and will run through Spring 2027.
